    I just started incubating some turkey eggs a couple of days ago. One of the eggs might have a crack that I can't see - it keeps getting stuck to the floor of the incubator, freezing the turner. I've candled it and don't see a crack, but a tiny bit of fluid keeps oozing out.

    I know the answer will likely be "candle in a week and see if it's alive", but I'm wondering if I should just toss it now? Thanks.

    I'd toss it. If it's oozing something's wrong. Let it cool slightly and run warmer water over it and you'll find the crack.
