    Is suspect that one of my eggs in the bator is rotten. How can I tell which one is the offender?

    Very carefully! LOL YOu don't want them blowing up in your hand. I had to do that and it's easy to tell which is the stinker. I would get it out asap or it may ruin the rest of your hatch.

    I am curious, how long have they been incubating?
