    so today when i turned my duck eggs i candled all of them to see how they are progressing, all of them look really good. im on day 17 i think.
    the last one i looked at had black floating specks in what was the little bit i could see through the egg. the duckling is active inside. but these black floaties are a cause for concern.
    anyone have this happen? anyone know what it could be?.
    thank you [​IMG]

    prolly from them kicking themselves [​IMG]
