I’m hoping someone could help us out. This is our first time incubating eggs, and they are the very first eggs our Amberlink layed… Honestly we didn’t expect anything to happen, but to our surprise at day 8 we noticed some veins. Anyway, we had 4 eggs developing, and one non fertile. We Noticed pretty early that one egg had a small little fracture and embryo inside. We waxed it hoping to save it, but today (4 days to hatch) I noticed a bad smell coming from the chipped egg. I got the egg out and disposed of it (after candeling to confirm it was in fact bad not just a smell). It did not appear to be oozing or anything. My concern is that there are other eggs in the incubator and that smell is lingering. Is there anything I need to do/can do to help protect our other 3 fertile eggs?
