if within 28 days to 31 days and the duckings haven't hatched,there is a good chance the ducks are dead of late death or because the eggs weren't handled carefully enough,although the ducks may hatch late but fragile.

You can't tell if it's fertile or not based on its weight. The same amount of stuff goes into the egg regardless if it's been fertilized or not.

No, the egg has to be fertilized by the male duck for a chick to grow in the egg This is why when you crack open a chicken egg to fry, there is no chick inside.

You have to candle the duck egg. Hold the egg up to a light or a flashlight, and measure the air space.

You get a dead chicken, or duck. But you can get a chicken/duck tree, depending on the season, lighting, and waterness.

you can't tell when an egg has died if a duck hasn't been nesting on it but if the duck has been nesting on it take the egg and place it in a jug of Luke warm water and if it sinks it has died and if it float luckily your egg is alive

You can do the same things with a fertilized egg as you do with a store bought egg. The one advantage of having fertilized eggs is that you can incubate the fertile one's and produce chicks. Fertilized eggs taste the same as a "store"egg and you cannot tell from the appearance that there is any difference.

The only way to tell is to keep it at 100 degrees for 21 days. If you get a baby, it's fertilized. If you don't get a chick, crack it open. Was a baby forming that died during the 21 days or is it a stale egg? If it's just a stale egg, it wasn't fertilized.

A male duck can try to mate with a female hen. However, this does not usually lead to a viable, fertilized egg.

The only way to tell if the egg is fertile is to candle the egg with a bright light.

There is no way to look at the outside of an egg and tell if it is fertilized. If the egg has been under the hen for several days then you can candle it (shine a strong light into it) and look for embryo development.

It is necessary for an egg to be fertilized so the egg can hatch.

You can eat fertilized duck eggs, just like you can eat fertilized chicken eggs. If you do, you risk finding a partially developed duck inside, but they are not harmful.

Yes, a zygote is a fertilized egg.

A fertilized egg cell is when a sperm enters an egg. The result is a fertilized egg cell, or a zygote.

Typically, a duck egg is noticeably bigger and are off white as chicken eggs are white, green, blue and brown.

Try holding the egg up to a bright light and seeing if anything is inside the egg. If there isn't anything inside it and its not an old egg you can eat it. If you see somthing inside it, don't eat it.

you know if the egg is fertilized if you missed your period.

A fertilized egg implants into the Uterus.

You cannot tell if an egg is fertilized by the outward appearance. To find out if an egg is fertilized, you must actually crack open an egg and look for semen. If you need help with this, i would recommend searching Egg color has nothing to do with fertilization. Egg color is determined by genes in the chicken and is not affected by fertilization.

No, you have to have a fertilized egg and the eggs from the store are not fertilized.
