    This is my first time incubating. I am on day 20 and I went to go look at the eggs this morning and there is a clear sticky substance leaking from one of the eggs I open the bay door real quickly and grabbed it and gave it a sniff and it smells cheesy should I remove it? Is this a ticking Time Bomb?

    OK, yeah I thought so. I put it in a container and gave it a whack to see for sure...yep a yolker. These were the BCM eggs I set and couldn't see a darn thing when I candled them...
     
  4. Glad you got it out in time
     
  5. I am worried about my hatch. It's day 20 and no chirping or pipping. They are rocking though. Should I be concerned or do you they will just hatch late bc ik they hath up to day 25

    Did you set your eggs morning noon or at night? I think that a few hours can make all the difference...be patient. It's anxiety inducing...they're probably fine
     
  7. Okay good. This is my second time incubating and I had a good hatch last time with the same bator. When I come home from school later today hopefully there will be some pips[​IMG] I w share pics when there are pips and when (if) they hatch :)

    Still time, try not worry. I know that's easier said than done.

    Did you count day 1 as the day you set or after a full 24 hours of incubation?
