    We Peking Duck egg's -I candled them last nite at day 9. Everything is looking good. But since both ends of the egg are pretty rounded. There seemed to be air sak's on both ends.Which end is up???
     
  2. Hi! My Pekin eggs often don't have a definite 'big end' and I have to candle to tell which end has the air cell. I wouldn't know what to think if both ends had an air cell.
    If they are laying on their sides, they should figure it out when it's time to pip.
    Good luck!

    If your only on day 9 I wouldn't worry about it yet. When the baby gets bigger it should fill on end and the air sac on the other will get bigger. I would candel again on day 18 and see what it looks like.

    Good luck and keep us posted
