    Is that a flaw in the egg, pre-layed... or has it been bumped and dented/chipped in? What day is it on? Chicks can survive minor dings... and even major ones, as in the case of "Boing" (recent previous posting on BYC). More info please. [​IMG]

    If i read this right, and if it is a chicken egg, chicks are supose to hatch on day 21 and you are holding a 27 day old egg, therefore, i believe that is called rotting.
    I think.
