    I understand that if there is a bacterial ring in/on the egg that it could explode and that leaking can preclude that.

    I put a batch into the incubator yesterday afternoon and I have an egg with a tiny bit of dry clearish "stuff" on the shell, I assume this is the leaking part and that there is bacteria? I am about to throw it out......correct me if I'm wrong, ok?

    I don't know where my maglight is, so I haven't candled.

    I would say toss it. If it explodes in the bator...it would contaminate the rest.

    Wow! I thought is was computer generated! I kept looking at your name and the baby in the egg shell and thinking it said "just a snack" and wondering if you were making some political statement---lol!! I knew I was off, but just couldn't get my brain around the name......

    I'm trying to keep from busting up laughing at how my brain works!!
