    I have been incubating some eggs for fifteen days now and on one of the eggs some orange goo has formed. I have attached a picture. Is this egg rotten and I should throw it out? I couldn't make up my mind if it had a chick in it or not when I was canceling it. Should I chuck it?

    Should have thrown it out yesterday.....Unless the goo dripped on it from above...you are minutes from a catastrophic explosion somewhere around that egg..

    Do you mean an egg around it's going to explode? Or is it gonna blow?

    Most likely above if it is dripped on, other wise it will. Candle the eggs.
