    i am on day 16 with the eggs. two eggs seem to have little waxy boogers on them. i can't tell if the eggs are alive or not. i have seen pics of dead eggs and pics of them growing. they look the same to me. i know i have two clear eggs as well. get rid of them? the eggs don't smell. do you think they are rotting? i don't know what to do other than keep turning them.

    thanks

    If they are seeping you need to throw them out before they explode.

    so the eggs with the waxy stuff are eggs that are dead and getting ready to pop?

    Yes, the eggs are slightly cracked, and fermenting inside. Get rid of them ASAP, or you will have a real mess in your incubator. And---handle them with care!
