    I had the same thing happen not too long ago. I was told it is called an "egg fart". Most of these eggs are yolkless, so I would say your odds of hatching it are near 0.

    I think someone else went ahead and incubated a "wind/fart" egg and the baby hatched out tiny. They had it standing on top of a coin in a picture. I suppose you can set it and see what happens.
