Well one of the crested pekin eggs in the bator started to stink so I took it out in the pasture and popped the top off of it. When I first saw the membrane covering It looked red and black as if it had had veins so I was a little nervous to continue my observation. Sadly when I got the yolk out there was a little semi developed duckling. It had little feathers on it and everything. It broke my heart to see it laying their in the grass. Can anyone tell me why their is the black goop in my eggs? I popped a few others open and one was all black liquid with white blobs in it that looked like sheeps brain and the others all has black liquid surrounding a bright orange yolk. Is it my humidity? Temp? Both are set on the standard spots.Did they get dried out a little? Too wet? WHne I add water for the humidity I usually pour it in the round opening inthe plexiglass that helps the humidity. I placed the eggs out of the way for when It came down, but I did have to dry two today that I had just placed in. Can anyone help me out here?
