Infertile eggs

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by The Breaker, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. I was wondering if I should keep the infertile eggs in my incubator or throw them out?

    If you are sure they are infertile I would throw them out.
    You can put them in a ziploc and put in the garbage or
    bury them, you don't want to take a chance of a smelly egg

    How many days along are they? If they don't smell, it's unlikely they will cause a problem.

    I would take them out. What's the point of having them in there.

    Then it's probably pretty obvious if they are good or not. You could take them out of you're sure of your candling. If you're not sure, it probably wouldn't hurt anything to leave them there if you don't smell a bad egg.

  8. I'm shure I looked at fertile eggs and I couldn't see the light all the way through and I could see movement but I looked at some other eggs and I could see the light all the way trough but I will leave them in there Any way
