    I have an rcom mini 3 egg incubator that I'm using to incubate a 12 day old goose egg. Anyway I opened up the thing today and It smelled kind of funny. I thought the egg was going bad until I smelled it and it was fine, just the incubator smells weird. What should I do? Is this normal or should I try to clean it. I clean it before and after each use, so maybe I'm not doing a thorough enough job. Anyone have experience with rcom minis or goose eggs???

    It could be some of the product you cleaned it with off gassing or burning off the heating element. Candle the eggs maybe one of them has died, but doesn't smell horrible yet.
