    Hi all

    I am trying to incubate 6 'Indian Runner Duck' eggs, purchased from a reputable seller, in a small incubator ( The eggs not the seller ! ) [​IMG]

    3 of the eggs are 'Leaking' an amount of sticky, quite smelly, fluid, the others seem fine. Does this mean the 'Leakers' have failed, gone bad or ???

    any help appreciated

    I would personally take them bad ones out candle them to make sure you don't accidentally take a good one sounds like there may be a crack and it going off leve the good ones in you can candle them good ones if there 7 days or older. I'm not an expert this is just what I would do personally hope this helps

    Have you been incubating them? If not, I would incubate them. They may still hatch. If all those don't hatch, I would complain to the seller.
