    Put on a haz mat suit and carefully get that thing out of your incubator. It is a stinker.

    get it gone, honey! if not, youwill DEFINATELY wish you had!

    oozing is a bad sign lol...even if it is clear and bubbly, or a sticky orange that oooks like sap, anything like that at all!!

    it is bacterial growth that CAN affect teh rest of your eggs!!

    YUCKY!


    My daughter has invented a new sport of yucky eggs...she tosses them at the telephone pole to practice her pitching (blech!)

    pity the poor guy who has to climb that one!
