    What do I do? We are on day 7. I have candled several and and did find one blood ring. But we incubated eggs last year and had some that died and i don't remember this smell.

    Better find out what one stinks because it could explode, take out the one with the blood ring first and if its not that one start carefully sniffy eatch one .. good luck

    I checked and found 3 dead ones (out of 18). I have lots that look clear. Just a couple that are clearly alive. I have removed the dead ones. I smelled each and could not find an obvious "smell culprit".

    $64 in eggs and I think I'm only going to get a couple if I'm lucky. : (

    Bad luck some of them died [​IMG]

    Hope the rest of them are fine!

    Yes, I have heard of bad e g g exploding, and it makes a terrible mess so you'd better remove them
