    there were partially to compleatly formed babies but the eggs were all filled with water. So I know they had to have died around 3 weeks:( (turkeys and ducks) I guess it was just really not ment to be. does anyone remember the website that has the hatching problems and solutions. thanks.

    I wish I had an answer for you, that is so very disheartening!

    If you try again try the dry incubating method. I read that guys article again and it sounds really interested.
