    We candled my sons eggs and found this dark ring. The babies were moving in the egg. Now at day 25 the ring is still there. Baby is moving bu slowly. This is our first attempt at incubation and are learning as we go. Today we are suppose to stop rotating. Does anyone know what this ring is. These are duck eggs. [​IMG]

    Well then I have no idea what it is then but I guess you'll find out in a few days.

    We just candled for the last time. The ring is still in one but gone in the other. The babies beak was inside the air cell and moving so I'm assuming we are ready and they are ok. What do I keep the humidity at for hatch? I just pray he at least gets one. He's worked so hard.
