    [​IMG] Hello I'm new I live in NE Missouri I have 8 Rouen Duck eggs in incubator they are on day 20 1 is dicolored as in darker in a large area the others are not. Does this mean it has stopped and gone bad? I had 1 exploded in the incubator last year [​IMG] what a mess. Any suggestions? I will check in later on the way to pickup 8 Rouen ducklings and then go to Grandson's ball game [​IMG]. thanks

    I'd be afraid that it's bad and discolored from bacteria growing it in. Does it smell? Have you candled it?

    [​IMG] Just got home from ball game little over an hour ago. We had candled all the eggs 2xs 1st on day 7 then on day 15 both times egg F had a dark cloudy look to it. 3 or 4 of them on day 15 you could even see movement it was really [​IMG]. We got egg F out and disposed of it. Didn't want to chance risking others to a mess [​IMG]. Thanks for the reply we error on the side of caution.

    [​IMG] Thanks ezbird & Katy Sure looks like a great group to flock around. [​IMG] I believe this may become a habit. DH was surprised when I brought home 11 ducklings instead of 8. [​IMG] Just love my ducks I guess. Peanut our Drake has taken to watching over his new charges well.[​IMG] be going off to the office now will check in on my break.[​IMG]
