    Ok, does anyone know if the air coming out of an incubator carries any risk? I just set my first incubator and it is in the spare room, well, my grandson has a nap area in the same room... and being a paranoid or just extra cautious, could there be any respiratory risks?

    Unless you have a rotten one burst or something there is no significant risk that I've ever heard of.

    If there was any chemicals off gassign the eggs woudl be heavily effected and likely all die quickly.

    No, all the eggs I have incubated smelled nice and sweet. No funny smell.

    You are supposed to toss the ones that smell bad. So your room should smell normal.
