    I know in my experience Day 3 is a little to soon to tell. Prob try around Day 7 would prob have a better outcome.

    I think it is also to soon to smell bad. It has to be under a hen on in the incubator for longer than 3 days. Don't get rid of any of them yet. They have not had the time to properly start developing yet. So give it a little more time. Nature is a slow process but so worth the wait I think. [​IMG]
