    Hi,

    New to the forum but been reading all the very useful information over the last couple of weeks as this is my first time incubating .

    I started with 12 Cayuga ducks eggs 22 days ago, discarded 1 very early on but I now have 2 eggs that I think are infected - I have seen the ducklings move inside still. With being a newbie it would be great if I could get some other opinions.

    I've looked at a lot of photos and gooled it but haven't come across any like these:

    Yesterday the ring wasn't as defined as in the photo.

    Yesterday there was only a very faint line at the bottom.

    All the others seem to be doing ok for a 1st timer.

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks
    Jo

    I know nothing about duck eggs but was just curious, what do you mean infected? What would they be infected with?

    I think OP means the eggs are growing bacteria.
