    I just set my eggs 54 hours ago, and I just noticed, while peaking to check temp/humidity, that there are about 15 very tiny drips of yellow on my turner. These drips are not coming from the eggs but from the fan module that is just above. Will this hurt anything? Should I clean it up and remove any eggs it got on? I can see where a drip landed on one of the eggs.

    My incubator is new, this is its first time in use in case that makes any difference...

    It is probably oil or some other lubricant from the fan motor. I would wipe it off the eggs.
