Candling Duck Egg Day 25- Internal Pip


Candling the internal pip on my Khaki Campbell duck eggs. They began to breathe the air cell on day 25, and on day 26 and 27 they pipped the shell and hatched out of their eggs. *Candling is shining a bright light through an egg to view its development. This can be easily done with a small bright flashlight. On day 25 you should be able to see a large black mass and an air cell inside the egg. Sometimes movement can be seen in the air cell.
