Does this egg look bad to you?

    Ha! I just had to post this. It's a BCM egg at day 16 in the incubator. It's not the clearest picture but you get the idea. Immediately after the picture was taken I chucked it out into the street and it exploded (more so than a normal egg would). And the smell was just lovely [​IMG]


    The interesting thing was the day I put it in the bator it had a few drops of "sweat" that I assumed would evaporate but instead they just crystallized. I'm curious what caused it. The other 13 eggs, from what I can tell, seem to be doing quite well.

    Edited for spelling.

    I had one do the same thing. It exploded when I picked it up the next day because some of that "dew" had stuck to the wire grid. Luckily it was a small explosion & easy to clean up. Stinky, though.
