    Hello
    I am trying to incubate duck eggs and I have a really old incubator.
    I have 2 females and one male.
    I think the eggs are futile but it has been 2 weeks and not a lot has happened.
    I have about 20-30 eggs so I opened one and there was a blood vessel and a sperm I think
    but the sperm thing was broken
    and there was not a starting point if the blood vessel it was around the sperm thing but not all the way
    am I doing the right thing
    are they going to become babies?
    thank you
