Outside work we all noticed a dead mama duck. She had 12 eggs. I took them home as I have a heat lamp as we are raising baby chicks. I peaked inside one egg and saw a solid baby shape with fur and a white section. Not sure how old the eggs are but they look far along. Not sure if they're alive as it was 60ish today. I have them under-to the left (as directly under seemed maybe too hot) under the chicks heat lamp. I'm hoping they'll survive if they're not already dead. Any and all advice is welcome! How do I know if it's warm enough?! I ordered a thermometer but it won't come for two days and if they're 22-25 weeks it's not worth the incubator. Can I make them survive under my heat lamp?
