    I put my eggs in last night, and woke up this morning to a disgusting smell. I sniffed that egg out. Now I'm concerned about possibly finding another. How would I find one? Float them? Candle them?

    How long does it take for shipped eggs to go bad?

    I had two shipped eggs go bad after only 24 hours in the incubator. I suspect they were old eggs. [​IMG] They didn't smell going in, but the next afternoon they looked like they were perspiring...droplets both clear and green/yellowish on the shell's outter surface. I put them in a strong ziplock baggies and broke them open. Nothing gross or weird. Just old and scrambled looking.

    Hope you don't have any more bad eggs.

    Shipped eggs = pure gamble! [​IMG]
