duck eggs ok?

schmargyApril 27, 2008

Hello everyone, I have 3 duck eggs in my classroom incubator. I candled them on Friday, 4/25 and they were all moving. They have four days until hatch date. I checked them today 4/27 and two of the eggs had a grayish spot on the outside of the egg that I am pretty sure wasn't there on Friday. I candled them again and I did not see movement, but the air space had gotten larger since Friday. The 3rd egg that does not have a spot still had movement today. Do you think they are ok? My Pre-K kids are so excited

Well. Egg 1 looked soupy today 4/29, so we disposed of it. Egg 2 nothing much going on, Egg three is cheeping and tapping and has almost broken through. 17 Preschoolers are soooooooo excited for the arrival!

How is the ducky doing? Will he become your pet when school ends? Any photos to post?
