I found a duck egg. I don't know how to tell if it's still alive. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have a fertilized duck egg which I found, but don't no whether it is alive or not. How can I tell?

Hold it up to a 40 watt light bulb you should be able to see what is inside. (05/16/2006)
I use to raise ducks,lots of them. If you want to find out if the egg is fertile you use a tube that fits over the light bulb with a hole in the top that the pointed end of the egg fits in. The egg should have blood veins running through it.If you didn't find this egg in a nest there is a good chance it is not fertile until it has been set on by a duck for at least a week.If the egg was cold when you found it anything in it is aready dead.
