    Congrats on the hatch! I've pulled a genuinely rotten egg from the incubator about 2/3 weeks ago. It's rare that they actually blow up. I've had that happen once only and then the membrane managed to keep the contents in place, though the shell was a complete bust. I think I would've impressed the bomb squad that day, removing that mess from the nest! lol

    I canceled all the eggs (with my iPhone's light, lol). I see the dark side on one side and a small clear "cap" on the other. So far, so good. :)

    Sounds like somebody's home! Fingers crossed they'll hatch soon.
