    so i bought some turkey eggs to hatch. today day 7 i could smell some thing funny. one egg had some goo on it so i picked it up and gave it a wiff. i jerked my head back and knew right away it was bad. so i get the bright idea to crack this egg and see when it went bad. I take the egg to the kitchen sink tap it on the bottom of the sink to crack the shell shell OMG what a stinch i grab egg make a run for the door tryig to keep my breakfast down and toss bad egg as far as i can. i try to walk back to the house but the slight breeze is blowing the stinch back at me by this time i am bent over in the yard spitting out the rest of my coffee and breakfast. i have cracked many bad chicken eggs to see what went wrong or when it went bad but i have never ever smelt any thing like a bad turkey egg. i will never crack another turkey egg in my life.

    Mmmmm........what gave you the idea that cracking a bad egg inside the house would be a good idea? [​IMG]

    As kids we would use those particular eggs to pelt the house of anyone didn't like, lol. Thankfully I've 'grown up' now and would only dream of doing such a thing [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that you lost your coffee. lol That egg must of been gross!

    My first bad egg I cracked in the house, wasn't as bad as yours but the smell was enough to teach me to never do that again. Just a few minutes ago I had a bad egg and I took it out to the fire pit, cracked it open took a quick look and threw it in the fire to fry.

    I had a cracked, rotten turkey egg that I finished opening ... just a little hole. I was outside, and kept it far from my face. This particular egg was not as stinky as I expected it to be, but when I tipped it over the fluid started running from the egg ... followed by nasty GREEN slime [​IMG] I am glad it did not smell worse. Do not get me wrong, it was NASTY ... just not as bad as some [​IMG]
