    Most have significant growth so I think I will have a good turn out. I kept the temps just a tad on the high side since the last group took so long to come out. One of my BR eggs from Mandy was oozing out fluid. I have never seen anything like it before and I could not find a crack in the egg but I figure there must be one? I cleaned it up and place it in the back corner of the hatcher to watch it just in case someone decides to pop out of it. I will keep you posted.

    Adam, I had that happen with one of Lexies. It had some tiny little bumps on one end and apparently, one had a pinhole, and when I candled it, found some wetness on the pointy end. I wiped it off and in 20 minutes it was there again, so I melted some parrafin wax and dipped the bottom of the egg in it, then put wax paper around that so it wouldnt stick in the turner slot. It was just the white of the egg leaking out the pinhole, not a real problem, but needed to be sealed. That egg did hatch a chick just fine.
