    I have had it happen to me once before about 4 days before lockdown. It smells awfully bad but that close to hatch I don't believe it will do as much damage as if you had just set them. The biggest thing I heard is to remove what's left of the egg and wipe off any that got some of the stinky egg on them. Just do not wash off the remaining eggs. Hope this helps!

    Also here are some other threads on here with more opinions
