:I am not really very experianced on this subject. I am incubating my first clutch right now. But perhaps you could candle the egg and look for an embryo. If there is a red circle of mass on the top part of the egg then it is fertile. It is possible for an egg in a clutch of fertile eggs to be infertile. Good luck. Eggs that are collapsed can still hatch, or so I have read.
If the eggs are due to hatch at the end of this month then when you candle the eggs a good portion of the bottom of the egg should be dark with veins and yolk towards the top. During the beginning of incubation is when you might see the red circle towards the top. But seeing as they are only 3-4 weeks from hatching the embryo should be towards the bottom. Thats just my experience. Also just keep doing what your doing and dont give up :) You never know! Also you can try completely covering the egg, instead of 2/3, cover it all the way with the moist incubating medium. Sometimes this helps difficult eggs in hydrating! Goodluck.. LindsayMarie
