  2. Hi! You can see by candling whether an egg is developing or not.
    is it licklty these will hatch or have they gorn bad. they smell rily bad

    I'd say bad-smelling eggs have gone bad (if I'm translating well).

    Moving the eggs, like shaking them? Rolling on floor? Rolling on their own? What do you mean?

    If you have some really smelly eggs in the incubator I would say you need to get them out of there. From what I have read, the bad eggs can explode in the incubator and kill the rest of the developing chicks. If they are bad, handle them with care and put them in a zip lock baggie once you get them out of the incubator for disposal.
