    Sorry you haven't heard from anybody yet. I had to get rid of eggs that didn't hatch either by 30th day. Only one hatched. I've also had to throw away a whole nest of duck eggs because None were fertilized. I'm afraid that might be your situation.

    I would toss eggs after day 25. I have never had anything hatch after that point. If she is still determined you can try to add new chicks under her.
