    I have ducks that were due to hatch yesterday. Still no pips but wiggling. Notice just a minute ago that they are getting dingy yellow areas on the shell. Does anyone know what that is?

    On the MN prairie.
    I have no idea why they'd be turning yellow, but if they're moving, don't mess with them.

    I hatch on rubber shelf liner and it leaves a grid like pattern on my eggs that is yellow.
