Hello everyone. I have a pekin duck pair and the hen started laying about a week and a half ago and whats pretty funny and great is that she has laid an egg everday!! Well i havent ate any of the eggs but i am wanting to see if they are alive or dead. I made myself a candler out of wood with a light bulb inside but what i see is darknes on the sides of the egg. How can i tell if its dead or alive? I have my eggs out not in the refrigerator nor an incubator. Does this affect its hatching? I have heard of people puting eggs in the fridge and they still have them hatch....i want mines to hatch Also how long does it take for pekin ducklings to hatch? I have not yet bought an incubator but what would you guys reccomend for an incubator that holds many eggs, is efficient and for a reasonable price..... Thank you!
