    Help please

    I have fertile duck eggs in my incubator and the oldest egg is forming beautifully it has clear visible veins and you can see pulsing however I'm a little worried because when you turn the egg the yolk doesn't move. Is it stuck to the membrane? Will it hatch?

    Anyone with any help would be great

    Thanks Kylie

    Hi, Kylie, I am not a hatcher, but there is a thread called Thread Formerly Known as Hatch Day is Today where there are people who do this all the time. It may take a little while, but I would ask over there.

    There is also a link in the Stickies to a Waterfowl Hatching Guide.
