    I have some eggs in an incubator and it is day 22. One of the eggs has what looks like 3 attempts to get out. There is yellow stuff coming from these spots. Its getting hard and I tried to wipe it off with warm water. It is pretty glue like. What should I do? Thanks.

    It is probably a rotten egg! Do you have an odor coming from it? An egg that is "hatching" has a clean hole in it...and you can see the beak through the hole.Sounds to me like you have an egg ready to explode....I would get it out of there asap or it will explode and spray harmful bacteria all over your other eggs which could kill any viable chicks.

    There is a smell coming from somewhere. I put a maglite up to it and the eggs is mostly dark with a small area that light comes through on one end.
