    Hi, yesterday I noticed a drop of water on my egg so I took a paper towel and lightly dabbed it. I though it was a drip from the condensation, but to confirm I smelled it... It smelled a bit salty, but I wasn't sure what that meant. Now, a day later, it has yellow crust on it (from the leakage). It does not stink at all, just a bit salty smelling, so I doubt it had a bacterial infection... What does this mean? Is it still viable or should I toss it? I believe it might still be developing because it was at the same development point as the rest of the eggs. Thanks :)
