    Last week one of my hens hatched out 5 of the thirteen eggs that she has been brooding. Well this morning she hatched another by herself. i.e. she broke open a rotten egg! [​IMG]
    I came back in the house gagging and almost throwing up. My DW declined assisting me in cleaning the brooding pen but I got it all taken care of and got the hen and chicks moved into a new pen. I then hopped on the bike and rode (pedaled) to work.

    [​IMG] that would suck. Bet you woke up really fast with that. My son would have gotten sick right there in the coop and then tell me I need to clean the coop. After that he would stay out of the broody coop till all eggs are gone. [​IMG]
    Smells like that in the am is something I would not wish on anyone!
    forgot hope your day gets better!

    I totally sympathize!
    I was trying to drill a hole in an ostrich egg with a hand powered drill. When I got to the last bit of shell, pressurized rotten egg shot out of the hole all over my face and kitchen ceiling! I ran with the egg outside to fresh air to gain composure. After a couple minutes of gagging, I tried to return to the kitchen only to find my dog licking it up, which sent me back outside to gag some more. [​IMG]
