My incubator has 5 days left on the latest hatch and when I woke up this morning the house stunk of rotten eggs. None of the eggs in the incubator are cracked and its hard to say that the smell is definitely coming from it but I cant think of anything else that would be smelling like this.

So far Ive been pretty horrible at candling, how can I tell if any of the eggs are in fact rotten?

Take the eggs out of the incubator. The ones that keep their temperature have chicks in them.

WARNING: Eggs that are duds ARE EXPLOSIVE! Handle with care, and to be on the safe side, sit the eggs outside. Don't leave them out longer than 5 minutes.
