    Hi there. First time hatcher! A mallard mother had Lates in the garden but the neighbours dog chased her away an ate most of the eggs. I saved 2 (after she didn't return) both look at about day 20-23 by candling and today there's reddish leaking on one of the eggs! HELP WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!??? Can still see strong red veins when candling so would appear to be alive. Other egg has none an still remains supposedly normal

    Oozing? Did the egg crack?

    How developed are the eggs/ducklings?

    sounds like there's a crack and a vein got broken, need to try and stop the bleeding as fast an possible.
