    My daughter and I have been incubating eggs just to see what would happen [​IMG]. last night we candled eggs and were so happy to see almost every egg had a viable chick in them. Then we came to an egg that is stuck in the turner[​IMG]. It is no bigger than any of the other eggs so I am not sure why it is stuck. I tried to gently persuade it out but with no luck and i didn't want to break the egg while in the turner, especially when we only have a week to go? What should I do? Should I just wait and when I remove the eggs from the turner try to coas it out? Will a little watter on the eggs shell hurt it just to loosen it all up?

    Thanks so much to anyone that can help me!!!

    I would try some water and see if that'll loosen it up. Nothing to lose, and it won't hurt the egg.
