    Okay I should have posted sooner but it never came to mind; We are using an incubater for the first time, the eggs are supposed to hatch in a week or so. I saw a Buckeye egg in the incubater that had some yellowish goop on it, we took that egg out and candled it all we could see was a small air sac so then we put it over a plastic bag in a bowl then we gave it a small tap and it EXPLODED a few things got sprayed with rotten egg, it instantly smelled HORRIBLE we threw the egg in the garbage then took the garbage out and cleaned everything up. it smelled bad for a while. I also learned what rotten eggs smell like [​IMG]. now to wait for the eggs to hatch [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is the major reason we candle at ten and eighteen days. To get rid of any developing stink bombs.
