    One of my eggs has droplets of red stuff all over it.
    What is it?

    It's rotten and it's going to blow. Get rid of it quick and carefully. When you throw it listen for the explosion and you will know what you avoided.

    Run runaway fast!!!! and take the egg with you and fling it into the yard as far as you can, it is a stick of one heck of a stink bomb.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    It is seeping, which means it IS rotten and has pressure inside it. DO NOT fling it unless you want it all over your face and arms. Just gently place it wherever it is that you want to dispose of it.

    Exacly. Get that thing out of their fast. It'll be the worst thing you've ever smelled. I had one explode in the house, it took days to get the smell away.​

    Ever put dry ice in a soda bottle? Yeah, same theory, but stinky and not fun.

    If you throw it...Make sure you are not down wind of wherever you plan on doing so. If you want to do a cruel practical joke...use that...but be very careful as to how you handle it!!!

    Get a plastic bag and place it in there very gently. Then, get outside with it ASAP.
