Normal to stink a fair amount?
No, sounds like you have a bad egg.
Sniff each egg and look for seepage. I wear latex gloves if i find a stinker, you don't want that on your skin
So it is not normal during hatch. But what about after hatch?
Just got done with my first hatch and after a few of my chicks hatched I noticed it was getting a little stinky inside the incubator, but being a newbie I thought that it must be normal. By the time my chicks were dry the incubator stunk the whole room up. I had 4 eggs that didn't hatch, but I never opened them up to see what happened inside.
It doesn't smell like rot. It smells kinda like warm chicken poop. I think it must be normal but strong because I'm having a three day hatch. Woke up this am to three more out and two more zipped.
Once you go into lockdown, the bator stinks. It smells like afterbirth, mildew, blood, and poo.
Quote:I agree. Once the chicks started hatching, I noticed a smell in my Hovabator. Once it was cleaned, smell was gone.
