    Stuck dud!

    What's the best way to get a dud egg unstuck from healthy eggs? It's on the outside of the clutch but still attached. Thanks!

    Why remove it? A lot of people just incubate them with the live eggs as you can often do more damage trying to remove it than allowing it to remain will.

    Leave it and incubate them all together. Might get rotten eventually and fall off itself. Then you can remove it from the others.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was safe to leave it (my first clutch!).

    You can try gently peeling it off if it's not too stuck on there. But not harm in leaving it, as long a mould doesn't spread to the good eggs
