How do I get rid of the smell in my incubator? Some of my eggs were bad .
post #2 of 7

Get rid of all rotten eggs. Sometimes a rotten egg will spread and ruin the whole bunch so check the others too. I'm not sure what to do for a lingering smell inside an incubator while the eggs are going to be hatching but after they are out give it a good cleaning.

The smell isn't the worst part, if the stink eggs explode, it spreads  bacteria everywhere  - that can kill any that hatch healthy.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Well it didn't explode. Unfortunately two of my eggs leaked out and it caused a big stink . So I now have odor that won't go away. Do I need to throw out my incubator?
