    Do you mean like in Red blood or just droplets of water on the egg? Is there condensation on the bators sides and top?

    That doesn't sound good or right at all.

    Either the eggs are bad, or your humidity is way, way too high. I lean towards bad. If the egg is definitely oozing liquid, you need to toss it.

    The eggs should be at room temp when you put them in the incubator. If they were cold, they will sweat when they start to warm up.
    If you have water in the incubator take it out. I keep my humidity at around 35 to 40 % for the first 18 days and raise it to around 75 or 80% for the last 3 days. Good luck.

    I have never had a condition like the one you explained, I don't know what it could be. Development is easier to see after about a week, so I wait until day 7 to candle.
