In the Brooder
- Apr 5, 2012
I recently started raising duck eggs and have been getting worse and worse results. First batch had 100% hatch, then I had 90% but after several more batches I have now had two that had a zero hatch rate. I've been noticing that most of the eggs that don't have have darker areas on/in the shell. I'm wondering if the chicks are dying to bacterial problems? Has anyone else experienced darkened eggs during a hatch?
