    What do you do with your eggs that candle clear after several days to a week? Could I hard boil them and feed them to the dogs or should I throw them in the trash?
     
  2. Hi! I hard boil them and feed them to the chickens --- but only the clears.

    Nasy egg farts are the worst. Who knows what old eggs in incubator would smell like. [​IMG]

    I put mine in a ziploc bagie and toss them in the trash. I remember reading on here that you shouldn't feed the incubated ones to dogs, though I don't remember why. But she gets all the cracked and broken ones, so she's good!

    We opened each one of the eggs that we pulled from our incubator. Some were clear, some quitters. We examined the "quitter" ones under a microscope. I was a good science lesson.
