    egg 39 was weeping pretty badly on the bottom. Got it to the garbage in one piece!! Candling went no where with my welsummer, Marans (s- hehe), and Pendesenecas eggs being darker, so I started smelling- each had a bit of smell from being in the bator with the bad egg till I could convince myself anyone of them was a bad egg. LOL. Then on egg 39 I found the weeper and checked the remaining 3 to be sure. Will the smell remain the whole hatch?? I'm nauseated. Gonna try a weak Gin and tonic therapy to calm my stomach.

    The smell should go away unless the egg had dripped or weeped onto the wire....that funky smell sure can make a stomach weak quickly!!!...peeee uuuuuuu
