    I'm no expert but that sounds like what it should be doing so just wait for it to get out and dry off! Lucky you!

    Thank you will do. I just candled didnt want to handle to much didnt see much or if any movement and does not smell bad at all. so I am going to wait it out . really nervous, does any liquid go to the bottom of the bator at all? I mean I got some brown liquiid, just a bit after it cracked, is that normal with some hatches? or is it pretty dry?

    My mistake I didn't catch the part about the brown ooze. I was in the middle of cooking supper, (burnt the biscuits), Any way maybe someone else can give more input on that. I really don't know what it is.
