    To incubate....they seem to have some kind of 'watery' stuff in the air sac area. For what ever reason after I brought them in I looked inside and saw the liquid..??.. so are the eggs good to incubate or are they bad ???? Don't really know why I candle them...haven't done before so don't know what to think...Please help !!!!

    Sounds odd.

    Did you read the sticky on incubating waterfowl eggs?

    Hmmmm. I am not a hatcher, but we have several on here - hope someone checks in.

    I would think, since the air sack is needed, that water in it would kill the embryo/duckling.
