There are a pair of morning doves laying on eggs and they have been there for 5wks now and they both are there? Are they laying on good eggs or bad eggs? How long do morning doves lay on their eggs???

This seems a bit long. I think you should candle the eggs. This means you take a small flashlight and put it on the back of the egg so that you should see the light shining through. If the egg looks black there is hope. If it looks brown, yellow, white or half dark and half light, throw them away. The eggs are dead.

Generally at around 10 days you can candle most eggs and see if they are living or not (blood vessles) after that it is more a guess with darkness and the air bubble size. A big bubble means it is dead.
