    I have some araucana eggs in my incubator. Last night I noticed little foam bubbles coming from the eggs...does anyone know what this means?

    That sounds like they are about to explode. Do they smell bad? I would throw those out.

    Oh, yeah. That's definitely a bad sign. [​IMG]

    Where are you in MD? We have Araucana just outside of DC in Northern VA.
