Welcome to BYC.
The float test is very bad, and not reliable. It should only be used to test the age of eggs meant for consumption. The ones leaking are probably bad. Best to remove them before they contaminate the rest. Open them up, just to check though. What kind of incubator are you using? Have you checked the temp with a calibrated thermometer?
