Hi all! I'm just one of the many first time hatchers that are incubating at the moment.. and I have a question. Well make that 2 questions! 1. My incubator floor (paper towel) has become wet since lockdown due to the water seeping out of my 'water wick' (cloth shoved into jar). Is this going to harm my hatch? 2. I think I have a bad egg..... I have 4 duck eggs remaining in my bator. I last candled on Saturday night and saw definite movement in 3 eggs. I went into lockdown last night (Sunday) at 9:00pm (19 hours ago). One of the eggs has started to develop a strange black patch on it's shell. My humidity is sitting at around 80% and temp is around 37*C. The last egg that I had which started to change colour was removed & found to be very rotten (it had never seemed to be viable)... but this egg with the new patch (shown below) is one of those that was only moving 2 days ago. First - a patch started to develop on the egg. A faint grey coloured one (circled in red below). I first noticed this yesterday evening just prior to lockdown. Then this morning when I woke up at about 6am I noticed a grey ring has started to form around the dark patch (blue arrow). This photo shows the egg without my marks I had a power outage for over 24 hours at the end of last week (Thursday & Friday) but candled and saw live eggs on Saturday (12 hours after power was turned back on). I'm worried that this egg is going to burst or do something evil? Does anyone know what this patch may be? As I am in lockdown, I do not want to open my bator under any circumstances. What would you more experienced hatchers suggest?
