    I had my first egg (duck) explode in the incubator yesterday. I can't get the smell out of my nose or hair.

    Wow. Just wow. What an intensely vile smell.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    Out of thousands of eggs, I have had one explode. But thank God, I was in the process of tossing it out in the yard when it did. I guess the force of me throwing it made it explode. It made a loud pop like a gun shot, my 2 year old thought it was GREAT.
