    What should I do if an egg explodes in the incubator??? Do I need to take all of the eggs out?

    Wow it's smells really bad.

    Get the bator cleaned up ASAP! It can ruin your whole hatch if you don't! If you have a heating pad, put it in a small cooler with a towel over it, lay your good eggs on it and put the lid on long enough to clean the bator up and get it stable again.

    Oh wow that's terrible, I dont know what to tell you.
    What day are you at with this hatch?
    If it was me and It was any time before 18 days I would clean it up the best I could and hope for the best.
    I had a egg explode under a hen, she broke up at 19 days loss that hatch I didnt have an incubator at the time.
    Her next hatch went great.
