    I opened the incubator tonight to turn the eggs and omg it stunk. like repellent of a major kind bad. bad enough the dogs ran reeked.
    I rotated 2, and when I got to the 4rd...it had dried yoke on the back side near the top. There were no cracks in it at all, it looks like it seeped through the shell.
    I have candles burning. I sprayed febreeze. It still reeks and the dogs are hiding in the back yard.
    and hubby is threatening to strangle me.
    and hide my incubator forever.
    and did I mention it reeks. bad.

    I took it out. put it in a ziplock bag. then another ziplock bag then another one then in a plastic grocery sack tied closed and then in the garbage can which is now outside in the big bin. and my eyes are watering from it.
    Could it really explode?​
