Hi, Our Yard Fowl which roost inside the Coup of a night time, seem to have at least one hen who lays but never quite gets round to sitting. As I managed to rescue several eggs previously I decided to try to incubate them myself. From very early on I noticed a pungent smell, and these growths coming off the shell, looking a little like coral. I took it to be some kind of fungus or similar due to these eggs being smothered in poop by . I washed them in hottish water, but the smell is still prominent, and the fungus seems to keep cropping up. I don't think these are rotten as in gone off. Any ideas as to what to clean them with? These have now been incubated since the 22nd of August. Am I just wasting my time? Are they likely to be affected by the soil that was on them in such quantity's. Thanks for any ideas.
