    If they are weeping, that's a bad sign and cause to be concerned over explosion! I would get any weeping eggs out, if you can tell that it is not just a bit of moisture from a pip. I believe that if they begin to weep so close to hatching, it is a sign of too high humidity levels. Definitely be quick about checking them...exploding eggs during hatching can be all kinds of trouble!
