    While candeling on day 5 I saw a few fine cracks in one of my green eggs? Should I get rid of it?

    I am not an expert [​IMG] but I would give it a chance and if it is developing keep it.

    It is 1 of only 3 eggs. I definitely want it but since it is green I can't see in very well. I have heard you risk a cracked egg exploding and contaminating the incubator.

    Green eggs are Rey hard to candle. Hopefully it will be fine for you

    I really can't see into the egg. I do have some veins in another green egg though. I will try the nail polish. Thanks
