    My duck eggs are on day five and they are all forming! (from what I know of!) And I dont hear heart beats when I put it up to my ear?! When can I hear one?

    Hi

    Im afriad you wont hear a heartbeat but if you candle you may well see one. The only time you'll hear anything is towards the end of incubation when the chick is pipping. Just get a pen torch or candler and see if you can see an embryo developing.
