    Take a tiny piece of toilet paper or tea bag paper and patch it if it's not close to hatch time.

    The goo will act as glue.

    means it's going to hatch. not ideal to hatch before 70 days, but I'm sure it'll be just fine.

    I had an egg that may have done something similar. Does it look like the egg in the photo here:

    http://www.pangeareptile.com/forums/...605#post434605

    So much leaked out that I didn't think there was enough still in there to sustain life. Also, all the other eggs laid that week had hatched. After a few hours I lifted the egg and found a split in the side of it. I finished cutting it open and found a deceased gecko that was smaller than the other hatchlings.

    I think if I'd cut it open sooner, it would've already been dead anyway, since it was so much smaller.

    It's a really difficult decision. I'd rather err on the side of not cutting, because I'd hate to think I'd caused the death by taking an action.

    ETA: If it is only leaking a bit, do NOT cut!!! Mine was practically exploded.
