    Ok, so there's an incubating egg stuck to the turner cup , its been stuck there for about three days. The question is whether or not to try and unstick it, how to do this or just leave it be. Im afraid its seeping because its bad and dont want to lose the rest of the eggs in the bator if it blows.
    Ideas? Suggestions?

    Sunny side up :)
    You could get some hot water in a spray bottle and squirt it down the sides of the egg and hopefully it would come loose. Then wipe the egg turner clean so it wont start to smell in case it was bad.
