You need to warm up some water to the same temp as your incubator. If you have a water bottle in your incubator, use that water. Gently flush out the brown stuff.

How soon did you cut? Just remember, when you cut you open the inside of the egg to a warm moist environment that is prime breeding ground for bacteria. It is best to not cut them until after day 55, if you are incubating around 89 to 90.

The other thing you can do if you want to be very careful is to flush it out with saline. However, I find that bottled water does fine.

good luck

I cut one egg early on day 42, I believe, and sealed that sucker up with a band aid, the baby went full term and just shed a few days ago for the first time.

I wouldn't advise cutting early in the future though, the eggs can get dried out, grow mold, or even have maggots get in them /:
