Goose eggs are dark when candled? Need advice

Hello, I have an African Goose that started laying (her first time), I do not know when she started laying, I believe shes been sitting 20days or so. Last week she hatched 2 ducks, shes still sitting.
She had 7 eggs under her (all hers except 1 which is a chicken or duck egg).
I candled them today and saw the little duck/chicken in the egg.
But, theres one egg that has a baby that just seemed to start growing (maybe not even a week old in the egg) and its doing good, so now.....the other 5eggs that are hers, I candled them tonight (5/22) and they are all dark inside, I cant see anything, in some I could see the air bubble. How do I tell if they are alive or not? How many times a year do geese lay?
