    i'm at day 26. the room the bator in smelled horrible. i knew that i still had a bad egg in the bator. i opened it to smell the eggs and one hit me. i checked the air cell and could see leakage into it if i tilted the egg. it also was seeping out a horrible stench. i put the egg in a baggie and took it outside to dispose of it. i cracked it open and the baby was still alive. i thought that a seeping egg was bad! it stunk! it was leaking! i should have known better because the same thing happened with a guinea egg. i have another egg in there that stinks but i am too afraid to do anything with it because i needlessly messed with it. please tell me to leave things alone!!!!!

    I would have taken the stinky egg out also...So its not just you....
    having a stinky egg blow up is no fun.

    yeah, you're right. but i don't understand how a smelly, leaking egg can turn out to be a developing egg. the signs of a rotten egg where all there and i ended up killing it.
