On Tuesday I set eggs for my son's class. Last night, one of them burst in the incubator. Ay ay ay. What a stink! The poor parents dropping off their kids! Haha, it was not good. After an initial wash out this morning, I gave the Incubator a good bleaching this afternoon. I didn't want to have the eggs out for long or be a disruption to the class during their morning meeting so I figured that would be the best way to go about it and now it's disinfected and back up to temp and not so stinky. I smelled all other eggs, and well, they all kind of stink a bit from the burst one. I brought the worst smelling egg home and egg-topsied it just to be safe that it too wasn't rotten, and it looked fine and fertile, white blastoderm but no development, and actually the contents didn't stink INSIDE, so bummer, it was a probably a fine egg. But what concerns me is, I'm used to seeing SOME development after 24 hours in the incubator... And I'm not seeing anything when I candle this brood. Did the stink bomb egg kill them all overnight? Or am I just being a nervous nellie and should wait a few more days to see veins etc.? I also noticed that quiet a few of them have very porous shells. So I'm worried. Has anyone else had an exploder and lost a whole hatch? I wanted this to be fun for the kids, and I'm bummed that it might have ruined the whole project on the first day!
