    I currently have several eggs in my incubator and all are progressing well. I have an oddity though, there is one that is 8 days along and there are scant veins and a dark spot, however it looks like the yolk may have been broken somewhere along the way. I wondered if anyone else has seen this happen and what the outcome was. Thoughts?
