Egg-citing Times

With only 4 days until Disco hatches her brood, I have been getting a little egg-cited at the prospect of some new season ducklings. 

Unfortunately after taking a photo yesterday I discovered that Disco has accidentally lost an egg outside the nest. 

This could only have happened the previous night as I check the nest every day, so I rushed into the coop and removed the stone cold egg. After candling I could detect no movement, but decided to put it in the incubator on the off chance it might still be alive. As it was due to hatch in a few days It will be a miracle if it survives.
