    Are these eggs consumable by humans? or are they throw aways?

    Sorry, correction; If these eggs are found to be infertile after 7-8 days are they consumable by humans?

    I imagine theyd have some kind of bacteria in them.
    I wouldn't want to eat them personally.

    Incubators are a lovely place for bacteria to grow.

    The reason I asked this question is there are entire sections of the world and cultures - more populated then all the
    western world that consume eggs that are incubated for 10 to 15 days and consumed raw right out of the shell this product
    is called "BALUT". Your assumption of the formation of bacteria - in my opinion would be correct but is this bacteria
    pathogenic?

    You can eat it but, I would cook it. And in my opinion I wouldn't eat it just to be safe
