    Hi all. So hatching for the first time and like many others worried as can be :) I have 6 Muscovys that are on day 18. All seem well and moving. However when candled you can see a black splotch on the side of one egg. The embryo seems very lively otherwise. Is this a normal thing? Incubator im using is a Farm Innovators 4250. Temp between 95.5 and 100. (took a little time to get that right) humidity around 63%.
    Thanks
