    Ok, so this is my first time incubating and I bought a dozen eggs from a local chicken farmer. Over the course of the incubation we have had to throw out 6 of them, and the ones left should be hatching any day now. One of them had this chunky looking yellow/brown stuff on the outside, but there is no rotten egg smell in the bator. What do I do?

    Have you candled them? I would think an oozing egg is no good.

    I've candled them all, they're all in final stages of incubation, or so it seems. This particular one looks the same as the others, but it's very hard to find the air sack
