    It is most likely seepage, which means it is rotten and might explode.

    I would ditch it asap.

    Be very careful not to bump it on anything, the result would not be good.

    It could explode or it might not. All depends on whats brewing on the inside. If is is leaking then it is probably releasing some of the pressure and less likely to explode. Will you open it and see what is going on? I would remove it , too as the others are due to hatch soon. Good luck with the hatch. Always interesting the things that happen!
