    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.
