    Hello!
    I was just candling my moscovy duck eggs and I noticed something strange... we are 12 days into incubation and one of the eggs looks very different than the others. I see movement in all of the eggs and can clearly see a tiny body and big eyes in 3 of the four. The fourth looks enlarged and has 2 dark spots on opposite ends of the body. Can anyone tell me if something is wrong here?
