HELP! First time incubating and freaking out

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a smell coming from the incubator and I'm almost positive it's a rotten egg. My eggs went into lockdown last night and they didn't smell then. Do I open the Incubator and figure it out to take the egg out? How long from when the small starts do I have until this egg explodes? Wednesday should be day 21. Any advice would be amazing

Yep I would open and check for a bad egg. It may or may not explode so I would not risk it sickbyc.gif

Okay I opened and found the smell, it was one I just candled yesterday and thought it was okay. 😢 Apparently I'm in need of more reading to figure out where I went wrong.
