    I was warming up the bator and had washed and marked 50 eggs with pencil the X for turning and took a nap. when I woke up, there was a egg on the floor by my shoe, and I thought oh oh, its not Easter (as in egg hunt)... so I ran to the kitchen and counted my eggs from 50 eggs now I have 40 !!! The dog has bad gas. there are egg shells outside, we have a doggie door. My neighbor gave me 3 mixed chicken breed to add . so I have 43,
    I cannot wait for 3 weeks. There are Turbens, and EE's. Wish me luck.
    Oh, my husband says I have to keep the dog.

    Do you give your dog a raw egg often ? Or should I ask do you give your dog an egg out of the coop ?

    Eeww! Better close that doggy door. Our dog ate way too many eggs once and she had the runs for 2 days. Talk about some smelly stuff. Yuck!

    My dogs have a large fenced area, accessed by the doggie door.
    They are not allowed near the chicken coop. They do sit and watch the chickens.
    I do on occasion give them an raw egg slightly scrambled in thier bowl.
    Never an entire egg, but that was a good question!

    These eggs were given to me and they were very dirty, that is why I washed them, but should I have not washed them?

    Can anyone give me a explanation of egg cartons in the incubator?
    Maybe in a taller model, I don't think it would fit in mine.
    I am using a Little Giant still air model 9200
