    Okay so one of my eggs has a crack in it (Not a big one but...) and its only the 10th day of incubation!!! Is this okay??
    Will it not hatch because of this?
    Thanks!

    Do you have any candles peferbly one thats uncented. just dribble some melted wax on the crack. if nothing damaged the embryo when it got the crack it should be fine

    How long has it been cracked? Candle it and check for development. Probably wont hatch. But the wax idea could help if it is a fresh crack.
