    Can anyone help me out? I’ve got rescued eggs in an incubator, and since we’ve had them, they’ve slowly started bleeding under the shell? And it started with one and it’s happening to more and more. We’ve had to throw out 5 eggs already. I can’t seem to find anything on Google. Is it something we are doing? Do you think it’s residual damage from whatever predator got mama? Is it bacterial? I’ve hatched 4 geese and 6 ducks over the past 5 years and I’ve never seen anything like this. Help

    Are you sure these eggs are still good/alive?

    I don’t see any blood. But I do see water droplets on the eggs. Is your humidity that high, or did you just mist the eggs?

    How long have they been incubating, and have you candled the eggs?

    We had just misted them. And the center egg definitely has discoloration under the surface

    Your shells look thin so your seeing more . What actually is the issue?

    Welcome to BYC! When I see that bruising and discoloration in my duck eggs it usually means the egg has died. Can you post a picture of the eggs being candled?
