    Hello all! Today is hatch day. I candled my eggs today and all but one appear to be fertile. The one that I don't think is, has a loose yolk almost. Whenever you turn it, it moves around. If you gently shake it, it just feels like there's a yolk inside. Not fertile?

    It's probably not fertile or a dead chick very early in developement. Good luck and keep us updated!

    It is the 29th day and still no sign of ducklings. I'm getting a little anxious. [​IMG] Should I be worried yet? I gave them all the water test again today and they all appear to be fertile. Maybe that will soften the shells and make it easier for them to hatch? Anyways, if there's no ducklings by the time I get home today at 3, can I open one up?
