    Hello, today is day 28 and 4 of my 8 duck eggs externally piped today. On some of them, the pointy end is turning yellow on the outside. Is that normal?

    Same here on call duck eggs that are 28 days today too. Not yellow but a bit darker above air sack line.

    I think I'd have to take the whole egg out to get a decent picture. Hesitant to do that when they're piped.

    5 progressing but they sure are slow...stressful. But tiny advances on zipping every few hours

    Interesting, the staining I see is in pointy end. But the ones that have piped are slowly, so slowly progressing.
