    I had one duck egg in my last hatch that did that. It had died.

    Aww, don't give up. Maybe start trying with smaller batches of eggs and try a little different method with humidity, turning, temp, etc. Sometimes it just takes time to find that right combination. Once you do, you will have fuzzy butts all over the place!

    Please keep fingers cross for my other eggies in there, I have ducks of different breeds, chickens , and even 2 black bellied whistling ducks in there that I am sure my incubator of doom will kill. I want a darn duckkkkkk

    We had 1 do that. It must have hit one of it's own blood vessels in the membrane and started to bleed. It had pipped, so we kept an eye on it and it hatched fine. [​IMG] for your duckling.
