    Hey guys, Ryan had recently started laying eggs again, a week (i think) after i took away her 22 eggs as they werent fertile. We recently got a drake and like one day here, he is already banging the females lol anyways, I put the eggs under the light and i found a dark circle on the bottom of each egg (there is now 4 eggs) and around that circle is a sorta large white circle bit, idk what is happening. I saw this other post of this person who had the same thing happen to her eggs and it turned into a heart/veins etc but those pics i saw were in the days of the incubation. And my eggs were just freshly laid so i dont know whats happening, can someone help me.

    Here is the pics of the dark circle on the egg, please help me

    I also found my duck Charlie laying eggs and i put the light under them to see that they all have the circle in them .

    Also here is the post i saw https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/304863/duck-egg-candling-photo-diary
