I'm so excited! I just got my hatching eggs this afternoon from the mailman. They were well packed, but when candling I did notice that one had a tiny crack in the shell. After knowing it was there, I could see it, although not well, in regular room lighting. I have marked the egg so that I remember which one it is when the eggs are done settling and I go to set them. Has anyone ever had any luck hatching an egg with a small crack? My gut says to just pull this one out and throw it in with the eating eggs, but it seems like such a shame.
Also, one of the other eggs had a small dark spot near the yolk when I candled. I'm guessing this is something like a "meat spot" that sometimes happens in eggs. My question is whether or not this would affect fertility/hatchability of the egg?
