    Hi, got a few incubating quail eggs and one has a small pencil tip size hole in it. I looked in it and I see the membrane is still good and it definitely looks like tis developing. What should I do with it?

    Humidity is mid 50s in the bator.

    IN ALL PRACTICALITY.. CHUCK IT NOW BEFORE IT TURNS INTO A STINKY MESS OR A DEHYDRATED EMPTY SHELL...
