    I have some eggs that were supposed to be hatching and some are a day late and others are 3 days late and have a stinky fart smell to them. Does this mean they're bad and need to be thrown away?

    3 days is quite a bit late, I'm afraid. They shouldn't smell, either. Unfortunately,rotten ages can cause bacterial issues and should be removed...careful, though, the gasses inside are expanding as it rots and they can explode....believe me you do not want to smell that!

    Sounds like you've got some bad eggs :(
