Cracked duck egg

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello! Our eggs are due to hatch any day now and we had one leaking a yellowish substance. No blood. I looked and dont see a pip, but more so a thin line around. Im worried its a bad egg but when I candle it I can clearly see an air sac and what looks to be a developed duckling. Thoughts?

Candle the smaller end, is it clear or is there any clear spots?  Sounds like you have a sticky baby, where are your settings right now?
