    Just wondering what I should do with the 9 eggs in the bator that never hatched. Do you open them and look what's inside? That sounds so disgusting to me. Or, do you just toss them in the trash? I have unplugged the bator. I'm done. It stinks and I'm not waiting on these eggs any longer. It's day 24, I think that is long enough. Kristy

    I dig a hole and bury them, deep. I use post hole diggers. They were alive, imo. They deserve at least that. Don't throw in your trash, if not picked up soon, they will stink of death. Another reason that I bury mine.
