Hello BYC! I just put in an egg into my incubator yesterday that I think mama duck had been laying on for a few days and it has starred to show signs of life. This is a Peking duck. Today I noticed when I put a light to it you can barely see a crack. It’s there but it seems to be only on the shell part but not much but a scratch. I only and incubating one egg this month just to have one more duck to my heard. Will this effect it? Should I put a new egg in instead? Here is a picture

Can you get a picture please? Sometimes I see lines like that on my ducky eggs. I usually assume that they're just thiner areas on the shell, or just oddity. If its not thin enough to be a crack, it might just be a mark.

I haven't personally hatched any eggs in the incubator, but my broody has had fantastic hatch rates multiple times. I didn't check the eggs after she started sitting, but I assuming at least some had the marks.
Here is a better picture
