    My husband just came up from the basement and told me I needed to check on the eggs. He said something smelled really bad down there.

    I looked in the incubator and there it is. My first exploded egg. GROSS!!!

    I will candle the rest tonight and get rid of anything that doesn't look right!

    Take care,

    Tami

    It smelled so bad. The funny thing is I had a check mark on it (meant good) from the last time I candled them. Either I was seeing things or I am really bad at candling! LOL

    Q: How do I clean the eggs off that have nasty egg yolk all over them?

    Take care,

    Tami
