    Yes it is. Lesson hard learned: Make sure that is not happening before you sell/give away eggs.

    do you think the eggs being slightly buried under woodchips on a over 80 degree day could cause an embyo to develop? our ducks JUST started laying... and we collect the eggs every day :D

    Maybe, but that looks like it has been developing for a couple days at least.
