    Ok so I am incubating my first clutch if eggs ever and all of them are fertile and today i opened up the incubator to candle them and one egg has a smelly brown liquid in bubble form comming out of the egg. Im wondering if this is normal of if the egg has rotted.
    Any ideas anyone?

    Not a good sign I'm afraid, I would get the egg out of there ASAP. Bacteria could spread from that leaking egg and compromise your other eggs. If the egg has leaked into the incubator clean it all up really well.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your other eggs :fl
