    Its day 35/50 and I just noticed one of our emu eggs seems to be leaking. Just wanted to know if theres anything I can try at this point to salvage the egg. We saw movement 3 days ago and we only have 2 other viable eggs in the incubator so we're pretty disappointed.
    I'll begin a thread search now but wanted to make my own post in case some of you are up and have a quick answer.

    Leaking eggs are never a good sign. If it were in my incubator, I'd candle it and most likely throw it out. You might only have 2 other viable eggs, but if your leaking egg has gone bad, its putting those other 2 eggs in jeopardy.
