    Hello today is my 25 day incubating duck eggs and yesterday I notice that there was a black dot on the egg and it also looks like the duckling is on one side of the egg and the other side all i see is yolk is this normal

    Also today I noticed that the air sacks suddenly enlarged and I see more movement near the air cell what does this mean

    These are runner duck eggs I think the egg with the black dot that I can also see the yolk on one side and the duckling on the other might not make it I think it's upside in the egg

    The duckling will start internally piping & the air sac will increase in size when it gets closer to the hatch date, so if you are seeing more movement at the air sac then they are starting to internally pip
