    I have 4 duck eggs on day 21 in the incubator. They've just been weighed and 3 have lost 8.6%, 9.4% and 9.7% so are on track for next week.

    However one has lost 13.9%! This is the largest egg which weighed 72g at the start and now weighs 62g. Should I be worried about this?

    I wish I knew more about hatching - I generally point people toward the Stickies on hatching, but I think you have already seen thoseā€¦.
