    I candled my eggs tonight on day 5... I was surprised to find this egg like this. No smell, no development, just strange IMO. I tossed it but would like to know if anyone has an educated guess on what this is and why?

    This is an egg that will not hatch but it will explode and all the smelly stuff will be all over your incubator and then you will risk loosing your entire hatch cleaning it up..... I place those gently in a plastic bag and then in the garbage... incase it pops! Pewew!!

    I didn't wash the egg, not sure if the shipper did but the eggs didn't look washed. It does not smell, that is what perplexes me....it went away, but I was curious as to why there was no odor or the usual bacteria you can see in eggs that usually look like this [​IMG]
