Two of my guinea eggs are wet on the bottom at day 22?

    First hatch for me... I have 4 eggs left in the bator with large dark masses - 2 with movement and 2 I didn't see any. I am on day 24 (out of 26 to 28 for guineas). I put them in lockdown Thursday night because I needed to get in it the bator anyhow - they were supposed to lockdown Friday. One of the thermometers wasn't visible so I opened it up and moved one of the eggs. It was wet underneath - the one beside it was too. No moisture anywhere else on those eggs. A quick candling showed movement in one egg - neither of the two that were wet. I'm sure I could have spilled water somehow yesterday? Is that the only thing that could cause wet only on the underside?

    Any eggs that are leaking or seeping need to be thrown out.
