How do I know if my duck egg is alive if his shell is broken at the top?

    If the egg is fairly new, then I wouldn’t hold out much hope. The baby chick needs a secure environment and if the egg is damaged, so might be the yolk and chick. There are ways to check to make see if the chick is still alive. It’s called candling. First, you need to be in a dark place, like an unlit room. Hold a flashlight up to the side of the egg. If you see a dark object in the middle, then it might be good. If the egg is quite far along, you might even see movement. The link below shows several pictures of good and bad eggs. Study them carefully.
