    that's a duck right? maybe nothing. it takes 28 days for ducks, for muscovys i think i is 30. your temp may have been a little low. but i am not sure what you are asking that went wrong? did you get rid of the egg because you thought it should have hatched already?

    No.it quit moving and started to smell bad. and the shell turned blue like a water stain. im not sure what went wrong. i was hoping someone might be able to see something that went wrong. yes a duck..pretty sure it was a muscovy. its turned blue one other time but it went back to normal. this time it started to smell and i saw no movement. its very upsetting
