I have bantam eggs on their 17th day and quail/pheasant on their ninth day in my bator. I know, I know right there is a problem I just got a little out of control after I bought my Little Giant. Yesterday I noticed a slight smell when I opened the bator to turn the eggs. Candled them, most look good. The pheasant are to dark but they are only on day 9 so I wouldnt think them rotten. I am worried that this is the quiet before the storm. If I have a rotten egg explode I will cry. My bator sits in the middle of the house where I run my daycare. The childrens diapers are bad enough but a rotten egg might put me out of business. LOL. Please someone tell me this is normal .
