Cracked egg in the incubator
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I have used nail polish on an egg from the beginning, and the egg made it to day 10.
Recently I got some eggs from a friend, 2 had cracks when I was candling for clears, they were just barnyard eggs, I thought I will not mess with them. So I pulled those with the clears.
on day 12 I candled my 3 little serama eggs, but not my other normal sized eggs. The were doing great. I did notice the heat was a bit warm, I reached in to adjust the eggs, and the sleeve of my night gown pulled the pen flashlight down on to my eggs putting a crack in one LO mix egg, and one Serama. Here I didn't want to mess with cracked eggs, but serama? common' I had to give it a chance. I nail polished now on day 14 they are still going. I will update with good news soon!
Hopefully a more developed egg will thrive with nail polish.
