    A mallard couple laid an egg in out garden..we watched carefully as we have dogs and were worried she would abandon the egg she laid....she did....we have kept the egg in an incubator and candled it today. The veins were spreading correctly as per images on the net....the black dot was there...what I am seeing today made me think that something has gone wrong. Any advise please [​IMG]
