I just candled my eggs last night and i was debating wheather to throw that egg out.I am knew at incubating and I have a tough time deciding when to toss them. I should have known better because none of the other eggs are that dark inside yet. LIVE AND LEARN Croooowwweerrrrr

Oh EWWW!!! I have never had that happen to me and I hope it stays that way. Did it explode IN the bator? If it did you hatch may be done for.....

Also, Another newbie. Why would it be done for?​

It would be done for because all the bacteria from the bad egg now got onto the other eggs, which will cause a blood ring and kill the chick inside.

It has always been my understanding that an exploded egg in the bator contaminates the other eggs. If I am wrong, I certainly apologize.

I had that happen to me long ago on duck eggs. I never got that smell out of my incubator. It hasn't put me off of incubating. That was the only time I have had an egg explode on me.

I agree with debiraymond.
