    My seramas are on day 18 under a broody. Yesterday I noticed a hair line crack on one. Today that crack is larger and starting to get larger. It is oozing yellowy yolk like stuff and has a slight smell. I swear it moved yesterday and I heard a couple little clicks or chrips in there today. Is this oozing normal?

    mukilteo, wa
    oozing is not normal. probably a bad egg that got cracked, I would remove it from the nest so the other eggs dont get dirty.

    I have a chick hatching at this very moment! Looks like the only one out of 12 that I had shipped.
