    I just did the eggtopsys on my lastest hatch. I dont think any of the eggs were ever fertilized! Not one egg had a chick developing in it. They all had this inside of it.

    Well except for one that had this in it

    It smelled so bad I ran to the trash can and almost threw up.

    I did not do anything wrong during incubation either. I kept the tempature at 100.5 and humidity at 45 and they during lockdown at 65 range. Did shipping do this to my eggs? or were the eggs never fertilized? Do you think I should Email the seller?

    Quote:EWWWWW!!!!! I hope mine aren't like that! I do see movement in mine so I don't think they are, but I don't think I would be brave enough to crack them open if they don't hatch!

    That happened to some of my hatching eggs (about four) when I did my eggtopsy and like you said, the smell is terrible!

    I crack the eggs open that I pull. but I pull on day seven if it is clear, day 10 if I see some lines but not enough for day 10, day 14 if I can't see movement or if it looks like a day 7 egg, and lockdown day if I can't see or hear anything moving and there is no internal pip. So far every egg I tossed has been either dead or not fertile.
    the stinky egg is an exploder egg, good thing you got it out of your incubator when you did. the dark blob eventually explodes and makes a giant mess to clean and sanitize.
    Off to look at my Legbar eggs. today is day 11, but i got too busy to candle last night. I like having the incubator in a room I can candle in. So much easier than taking the eggs to another dark area. Also less change of the chick not surviving the candling since I don't have to touch the egg.
