    I was candling my eggs in the laundry room and I accidentally left an egg mixed in with the miss matched socks for a day and a half. I found it this morning. And yes, its a fertile, developing egg.

    Did I just kill the embryo? The room is a constant upper 60's. Its a buttercup so its killing me if I killed it.

    I'd throw it back in. There is a chance that it might still hatch. I've heard of weirder things happening. Like for instance, I read on here somewhere that a lady threw some eggs away that she thought were bad, and they hatched in the garbage!! Could you even imagine?[​IMG]

    Kind of off Topic....

    One time when hatching button quail... I thought my hatch was done so I got all the chicks out and pulled the plug. I didn't get to cleaning it for a day or two... but when I did I heard cheaps coming from the incubator.... I felt so bad! He was a fighter!

    There is always a chance it'll be okay.
