    Day 21, 9 eggs, 2 wiggling, 1 weeping. Should I get the weeping one out or just leave it til end of hatch?

    Take it out, definitely! You don't want it exploding. [​IMG]

    Is there any way for you to candle it to see if there's a baby in it? I'm just not sure you should leave it in there with the rest of the hatch. It's possible since it made it this far that nothing will happen if you do leave it.

    Did it just start weeping? Normally a sign to get in out immediately. You DO NOT want that exploding. I agree, candle it to check for movement, becareful though, I've had friends that had a weeping egg explode in their hands, on their face, etc. GROSS!!

    TAKE IT OUT NOW otherwise it could explode and RUIN your hatch.
