    My hen was sitting on 4 eggs. This is the 8th day. She pushed out this one egg and pecked a little whole in it. I took it out and opened it. It looked like vanilla pudding inside. What happened to this egg. It took two days to ship it to me, same state.

    I've never seen one look like that from incubation. Maybe someone else has tho.

    I have never had one like that. I once had one kind of similar. I took out an egg that did not hatch. When you shook it, it rattled. When I broke it open it had a hard boiled yoke in it. It looked exactly like a hard boiled egg yoke. That was all that was in it. There was no white at all. I thought it was pretty strange.

    Only thought I have is maybe it wasn't laid right from a hen to start with. When you received the eggs and set them under the broody it just cooked it further and that's what your seeing.

    Breeder thinks it might be a ruptured cell. Just sent her picture to get a better look. What is a ruptured cell? Wanted to know if I candled the first day. What would I have seen or not seen. This is only my second hatch. My hen does all the work. She knew she didn't want it. It doesn't smell bad. Very little almost none, like puppy feet.

    [​IMG] I am no expert but the ones I have opened have all been extra runny, yolk breaks right away and white is like water.
