    Do you think this egg is fertile? If yes how long do you think till it hatches? My duck is sitting on her eggs for the first time and I haven't keep track on how long ago she laid them etc.

    It doesnt matter much when it was laid as much as when she started sitting. Chickens and ducks have all their eggs hatch around the same time by only sitting on a full clutch (ie: a 5 day old egg will hatch the same day-ish as a 1 day old egg, provided she begins sitting on them perpetually at the same time).

    I dont see any development yet but you can check again in 5-6 days for veining. Campbells take about 28 days to hatch after mom starts sitting on them.
