well my mutt duck eggs never made it the two that had pipped early died and all the others never opened their air sack.. tonight me and my brother opened one to see what was wrong because the eggs started turning a dark color and they were all gone but formed. Any ideas what happened? Also.. just a few days before their lockdown my chicken eggs hatched early before I could get them into a homemade incubator so I wouldnt have to worry about cleaning the incubator for my other eggs. I dont have all the parts for the homemade one just yet but could that have been what killed my duck eggs? if so I have 12 BEI eggs in the incubator now due in 2 weeks! Is there anyway I can take them out and give the incubator a quick wash and put that back in?? could I warm up a towel in the dryer and sat that in something and lay the eggs in there and run like heck and wash it real fast? what should I do??
