    Hmm, I haven't really seen any like that either. Are you positive it's on day twenty? Have they been hand turned or in an autoturner?

    I had eggs from my ducks that I hatched and 2 of them had some clear area in it like that on day 20 and they hatched. Keep a close eye on it for changes

    At day 20 they should fill up most of the egg for a duck egg and ready to hatch in a week. Can you check your temperature of your incubator with 2 other thermometers because I think it is too low? Like 5 degrees too low. Something is just not right.
