    Ok, So im new to hatching out pheasant, do they hatch like normal chicks? And the big problem i have is one of them cracked a bit and yellow foamy stuff is coming out and it stinks.....BAD [​IMG]


    But, i candled it, and it grew to full term (or so it looks) its all dark on the inside, and only thing you can see through is the air sac.

    Is this normal? prolly not, but i figured i would ask anyways....

    Thanks in advance

    hope this goes well. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Green stink bombs will candle black. I would precede with extreme caution around that egg.

    should i keep that egg in, or just trash it?

    I'm worried about it contaminating the other ones.

    Id say if its leaking and stinky the chance of it haveing a live chick is not really good so get rid of it befor it blows up all over you or the bator.
