    From what i have seen in my eggs( only incubated twice and am on my third time ) the second one is dead or undeveloped and the other two are fine.

    My chicks always start on one side and then fill out the rest. I've never incubated ducks though I imagine the process is very similar.

    The second one doesn't look so good, but it'd be interesting to see it from another angle. The first and third are definitely great.

    The second pic is a shot of it side on . All three have veins but all are developed to one side, so think its alive it just doesn't show the veiny side. So do you think this is correct? I was worried they'd stuck but I think you see a stuck circle if that happens don't you?
