    I had recently got some RIR eggs off eBay. When I candled them one of them was dark like it was ready to hatch. A couple of days later the egg started oozing. I cleaned it up and put the egg back. About a day or so later the egg was oozing again, then I knew that it was bad. I cracked it open and it looked like a scrambled egg. There were some chunks and what looked Egg Beaters scrambled eggs. The chunks looked like they were scrambled eggs. Anyone know why this happened?

    sounds like it got to hot during shipping, then shook around to much... it happens with shipped eggs.

    Is that possible? The other eggs seem to be fine.

    it could have just been the weakest egg. it could have started to incubate before it was gathered too. i just dont think it was something you done.
