    Default how to tell if an egg is good

    im not sure if my egg is still good i dont smell rotten egg or anything and it is still solid im just a bit concerned since i figured it should have hatched by now. if anyone has any techniques to tell whether an egg is good or not please let me know. i may just be paranoid lol i can post pics if needed.

    Did it candle red? Just let it incubate. If it is fertile it should hatch soon. At 84 degrees mine hatched at 56 days.

    My solution to finding out if an egg is good is 100% accurate.

    put them in the incubator and wait 8-9 weeks.

    just kidding, kinda
    all you can really do is move bad ones away from good ones, as they shrivel and mold. other then that you will probably just upset it by opening the incubator.

    Let it incubate until you are certain beyond all doubt that it is no good. Most of us stalk the incubator when eggs are due to hatch
