Has anyone actually had an egg explode in an incubator?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I certainly agree with the need for candling.  But has anyone ever experienced an egg exploding in an incubator?  When I was young, we incubated thousands of quail eggs, many many chicken eggs and a good many duck eggs.  

I don't think my dad knew about candling.  Anyway, we never had an egg explode in the incubator.

Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

I came very close....lol luckily the membrane was so tough that it held it together.

 

 

 

 

I have only ever had one that smelled as well and was able to find it and get it out before it had a chance to explode.
