    well it is all done and over. i went to go and tap them and see if there was any response..... needless to say they are done. i tried to pip them and they exploded. wow that was an experience. i hope the next ones are better off.
    thanks for all your help.

    :eek: no one warned me or my dd (13) how bad a bad egg smells when it explodes.... in the 13yr olds hand!!!!! and all over both of us!!!! now i can laugh but 3 hrs ago whew!!!! i was gagging! i guess that means that one was bad! roflol!

    the 4 others look fine and we have our fingers crossed.... i have set up a home for momma and the babes separate from the others so they are safe.

    I just cracked open an egg with a blood ring. I could smell it thru the egg shell! It was gross.
