    What causes duck eggs to turn blue/purple in the incubator? Some will still hatch.... some wont. But why do they change color? It happens to about 75% of my duck eggs... but never chicken. ALSO they sometimes change before I even set them in the incubator; when that happens, I do not incubate them.
