    so I open my incubator to candle them and it stank! day 14. I candled a egg that had a black mass on top and whenever i moved the black blob also moved. also this egg is cracked i think there was black or yellow goo on egg and at bottom of incubator. Do i take it out? This is my first time. I have little giant incubator with egg rotator

    YES! Take it out! Carefully so it doesn't explode!!!!! I'd grab it with a plastic bag inside out and then wrap it up and tie it and take it outside!!!! Hopefully the rest are good to go! Good luck!!!

    Yes. Be very sure. And be prepared for egg removal. Never, ever try to incubate a cracked egg.
