    I have 5 eggs in the incubator and 3 with vein's growing everywhere. But I'm worried now. When I candled one with vein's it had black spots growing everywhere, I'm thinking somehow bacteria?
    Should I take it out because the spots are on the inside you can only see them when candled.
    There's spots even in the are sack.
    I tried to find a candling forum but I did not see it.
    Can anyone help. I will get pictures if nessasary

    Hi! I have done tons of hatches but honestly I've never personally seen black spots. But from what you are describing it does sound like bacteria. What day are the eggs on? Does it have a bad smell to it? A pic would probably be helpful. I'm not sure what you should do. I would probably leave it and smell it everyday to see if it gets an bad smell to it. I'm not sure if the egg had bacteria in it, if a healthy duckling could hatch.
    @RavynFallen, any ideas?

    [​IMG] this is what it looks like today, yesterday it was a few black spots and veins now the veins have gone black as well and this happened.
    Thy are on day 7/8 I do have a really good egg and now one with some veins. But I don't think it's going to survive
