I have four duck eggs in the incubator and it's day 8, I can see veins in two of them, the other two I can't but there is a small black dot on one and the yoke in the other one moves are they bad eggs? It's hard to make out veins on the one with the dot due to the fact that it's kinda dirty and I was told not to wash it. Thanks!

I would wait until 14-20 days, depending on color, before culling any. If really dirty you can take a scotch bright type pad to it and gently scrub, dry. Personally I'd just not set dirty eggs and no worries.
Good luck.

Great thanks! One for sure has something in it. The others don't have anything I'm 100% sure. I have the mini brinsea incubator. Should I take the duds out now? Will it effect the temperature if I do?
