    it is the one in the middle. Is it because the chicks inside are pied, or have the eggs gone off ?????[​IMG]:confused:

    how long was it in the nest before you took it? i have some right now that i'm going to be setting in a couple days. all of them are white... except the ones that were in the nest for a while before i noticed them. they kind of look like that, brownish. just dirty i think.

    deff doesnt have to be rotten just because its brown. i see pekin eggs alter color the further along they are in the bator. still hatched. im sure if you see movement and all else is well with other eggs this one AS LONG AS there is NO ODOR. you should be good to go. GOOD LUCK! [​IMG]
