About to put the kids to bed and I notice a funk coming from the LG. I decide to investigate. I have almost no sense of smell so seeing that I can actually smell this is shocking. My daughter who usually sniffs my eggs out for me regularly has been sick for quite a while and can't smell anything! Sooo...of course Murphy's law takes advantage of this situation and gives me a stinker. I can't smell which one it is. My daughter always pinpoints it quickly. So I decide to candle. And lo and behold before I even get my light up to the white egg, there is very noticeably green ring right around the air cell. It looks like it has tendrils growing down into the reddish mass that was an embryo at the bottom of the egg. I never knew they actually turned green when they started rot. I want to take a pic but can't find my camera charger. Its in a ziploc and if I can find the charger tonight i'll snap a pic...otherwise its loooong gone tomorrow. I ended up candling all the eggs and pulled 21. I can't find my record book. But that leaves me with 50 or so chicken eggs and all the quail eggs. Can anyone candle their quail eggs? I tried but can't see anything. The whole egg kinda glows and it makes me a little concerned but I have nothing to compare it to. But...I had a bunch or brown eggs I'm pretty sure were clear last time but left them just in case. And I'm thinking my local woman's roo wasn't doing his job. Almost all the brown eggs are clear. Thats ok, I paid for a dozen and she gave me 2 1/2 dozen or so.
Well thanks for letting me vent guys! I love the support on here. I love the stories. You guys really are great people. Thank you.
