    JT813,

    Sounds like the droplets could be condensation. The egg is colder than the air in the incubator. Did you collect the egg/eggs same day as you set it in the incubator? Was the egg real cold? Your temp seems to be ok. I always let my eggs come to room temperature before setting in the incubator.

    On you NEXT try, see if you can get the temp up a bit. 99.5 is the minimum temp, 100-100.5 is better assuming the thermometers are accurate. Just a thought. God luck.

    Keep hatching. Lots to learn. You'll get it.
