    I am incubating 40 chicken eggs in my classroom in a styrofoam still air incubator. Today is day 13 and I noticed that 2 of the eggs' shells are really rough. They were not like that when I put them in or even last week. Does anyone know what is happening? They still had water in the wells when I checked this morning. It is almost like the shell has deteriorated on one end.

    Thank you for any help!!

    The shell of developing eggs will change and chicks will hatch easier.
