    Hey y'all, I ordered 8 eggs two looked questionable upon delivery but since I'm new I incubated them anyways. In a separate section of the incubator. One exploded one started seeping yellow stuff so I tossed them of course. The other eggs seem to be very fluid. Bubbles move all over the place even after two days in the incubator. No veins. Nothin. When incubating pigeon eggs I had veins after one day. Different bird different patterns? Someone tell me there's hope. I'm distraught. If it helps they are blue/splash Jersey giants. A breed that is unavailable in my area. As I have limited space I don't have the luxury of incubating and hatching out test runs.

    This one just started leaking so I cracked it open to investigate. Rotten right?

    rotten you'll have no doubt about if your nose works at all. best way to know rotten is just sniff the vent of the incubator, if you smell an odor sniff each egg, you'll quickly find any that are rotten.

    The ones in the brooder now don't smell wonderful but not rotten. It's just been two days. And of course I emailed the super and they simply said "sorry"
