    So the egg being black means good in chickens.....

    6 of 7 duck eggs are black like the chicken eggs, I presume that means good to.. But the 7th looks odd, its not black like the others, well it has some black but its like shaped, like mroe areas I can see the light and some of it is black, I thought it might have been bad but ITS MOVING....

    Whats up with that?? is it 6 of 7 eggs are bad or 1 of 7 eggs is bad? [​IMG]

    How far along are they?
    If you saw motion, you know that one is good. I found out that any candling close to hatch didn't tell me much, because there was nothing to see but black. So I only check for the obvious quitters and they rest I wait and see.

    So I'm going to say its a little early for all blacked-out eggs, but I still wouldn't give up on them just yet. They can fool you.
