    Pick up each egg and smell it. You can tell which is the bad one usually.

    Look for little dots on the egg too.

    If I open a incubated duck egg to see what's going on, I'll have two outcomes. Either I'll be a murderer or it will be infertile and I'll be forced to toss all but one.
    The one was the inner egg of a soft shell outer egg. It has "something" going on in it.

    I feel dumb that I didnt think of this earlier
    Is that just a cut down turner? So that it will fit in the coolerbator?

    Ok, I set it, I'm up to 11 eggs. Let's hope I get one more by noon to round out the dozen :)

    Thanks. I have lavender orpington eggs. And a mix of rhode island red hens and easter eggers hens bred with my black lavender cross english orpington roosters. Im breeding my lavenders back to black for a better feather quality! I really hope they hatch!

    Yes I did cut it down to fit. The whole thing is a remade styrofoam incubator. Which has worked really well for me. A wafer thermostat which I'm not really pleased with is the only change, this maybe due to its position in bator. Cutting down to fit has also helped in chicken math. What's not shown in picture is the hanging fans that are removable to put eggs in.
