Do you think this is growing?

    Not the best image, but I was wondering if this Duck Egg looks healthy and fertile? It is 10 days into incubation, on the 6th day I saw veins and the dark baby spot, so I know they were growing. When I checked them today I saw this blob in only half the shell. When I researched eggs, I saw the whole egg was blobbed, not half. When I turn the egg, the blob moves slowly and looks like it coats the turn, like chocolate syrup in a cup. I am wondering if they are still growing. I "think" I still see some veins, but am not positive. Thanks!

    instead of laying the egg flat on its side on the light try holding it laying down and placing the light at eaither end i find that its easier to see into the egg from the air cell end...from that pic all i see is a blob that i would assum is bactria growth (dont take my word on that as the pic isnt that grat)
