if you have an egg explode in the incubator. will it ruin the rest of the eggs
No, but it will cause the bator to smell like something died. DO NOT WASH THE EGGS. You could have wiped them off gently with a dry cloth. Washing or wiping to hard will embed junk. Some of the eggs will make it.
has it already exploded or are you worried about one?
I was advised to put upside down dixie cups over questionable eggs to keep the splatter down.
So far no explosions for me.
Quote:Yup. Exactly. The odor lingers too.
Quote:It already exploded on me
About the only way to get the smell off is to use the same thing as you would for a skunk. Peroxide, dawn soap and water.
Did you have any indicator that the egg was going to explode? Any bad smell? I had a bad smell in my incubator tonight and I found it by sniffing the eggs. But what if I had missed it??
I am TERRIFIED of an egg blowing up. It is becoming a phobia! LOL
yup.. exploding eggs.. yuck! i had a stinky eggs in the bator (for the first time ever) and i had to sniff eggs before i found it. I even had my oldest DD sniff it to make sure it wasn't just my sniffer. haha. also heard of weeping eggs are an indicator sometimes too
omg, thats a smell like None Other..
Oh, bad luck.
Hey--where in WV? I am in WV also. Near Fairview, sort of between Fairmont and Morgantown.
