    I have had a hen sitting for about 25 day's . Just been and checked and one of the eggs has began to crack I noticed a lot of fluid within a membrane, is that normal??? Also we just heard a very loud pop sound from under her which also had a bad odour, can any one give us any advice
    Thanks Nicky

    [​IMG] it sounds to me as if the eggs weren't fertile. Good luck to you.

    Sounds like you have a stink egg. It's best to get them out of there quickly it can contaminate the other eggs. Seems like the others will not hatch at this late date.

    Hello :frow Welcome To BYC! X3, sounds like you have a rotten egg in there, best to take a look at the nest and clean it out... if she has been sitting on chicken eggs for 25 days and non have hatched, they are probably bad.

    Welcome to BYC. If she has been setting that long, they are probably all rotten. Handle carefully so that they do not blow up on you.
