    I have 10 eggs in an incubator, Everytime I go to the incubator I get this smell, It's like peroxide smell? I've smelt all the eggs and It's just this certain egg that smells of peroxide and the rest dont smell of anything. I've candled this egg and It has a shadow and a possible air sac. What to do?

    In my opinion:

    Discarding 1/10th of your eggs is better than losing 100% due to contamination.

    Toss it, there will be more to hatch later.
