    Does it have a chalk type consistancey? If it is don't worry. You just had a hen go into overdrive building a shell. It happen periodically.

    no it just happened i have had my eggs in the bator 4 11days.
     
  4. Hi,
    The whitish crusty stuff is new on the egg shell? Does it look like little pearly growths on the shell? It sounds like the egg is oozing / weeping and has gone bad.
    I would carefully remove it from the bator and dispose of it --- very carefully, you don't want it exploding in your hands.

    Have you candled the eggs to see if they are developing?

    Good luck,
    Lisa
