Hatching egg- anyone seen this?

I checked on my duck's eggs today while mom was out on break, and one of them has something strange going on inside, visible through the shell somehow. It looks like a black area and a yellow area, down by the air pocket. I am new to hatching eggs, and don't know what to make of this. Do you think it's rotten? Should I get it out of there?

Here are two pictures- it's the egg in the upper left.

Thanks so much!
Yes, I'm afraid that's what a rotten egg looks like. :/ If you really want to be 100% sure you can candle it, but I'm pretty certain that it's no good. If that thing explodes you're gonna be in trouble, so best to remove it!
Wow, thank you all so much! I got rid of it and feel like I dodged a bullet :)

Thanks again!
Best of luck with the other babies, please keep us posted! And take lots of photos. We like bebbeh duck photos. :p
