    Definitely looks fertile. I candles my duck eggs after a few days and I could see the heart beating!

    So I just turned my eggs about an hour ago, and I wanted to candle #16, #17 & #18...

    #17 (laid on 12/2) wasn't as red as the last time I candled, but it did appear to look like it was still possibly fertile. #18 (laid on 12/3) was nothing so far... But, #16 (laid on 12/1) had veining!!!!! ^_^ it's a definite fertile egg!!!

    #16 (it's been 6 days) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Giving confirmation:

    Eggs #22a & #22b were laid today (yep, 2 eggs!). ^_^
    And when I turned the eggs this morning, I candled #16, #17 & #18: ALL FERTILE AND VEINING!!!!!! Yay I'm so excited!!
