    Hello! A duck laid 12 eggs up on my roof, and when about 8 or 9 fell off and broke, she abandoned the nest, and when she did so, she left behind three eggs, which we took into our home. One of our eggs is probably about 25 days along, (muscovy) and it is dark inside on the egg, almost like there is a duck inside, but along this journey i haven’t noticed any veins inside. Could this still be a healthy duck? (I have kept it in an incubator since I found it) Thanks so much!

    It does not look like it developed to me but I could be wrong. The reason I say that is because there are no veins and it is to straight lined in the dark spot.

    Wait, so you think it’s new and is on the road to developing, or is dead? Thanks again!
