    In a fully developed egg? The chick was dead but the liquid was bright green. I have never seen this before in all the hatches I have done.

    probably a bacterial infection. As an Rn that is the color of lig. sometimes in an infected area. jean

    I dunno but that sounds pretty gross. Did it smell like it had started rotting? [​IMG]

    No it had no smell. I figured some sort of infection, it was just weird.

    Most likely a psuedomonas infection. That would give you the green liquid, although I would suspect a foul odor from the egg. But who really knows without a culture.

    My hen had five eggs. She broke one of them, and when I had a closer look at the egg, it had this green liquid in the egg with no embryo. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Any ideas???
