    Uh, its dark to explain. :hmm Its sort of a small indent with about 3 lines going out in different directions. Could the egg be hatching? :p

    Not to worry, at day 7 it's not hatching. It takes 21 days +/- a day or two sometimes. You can put a piece of tape over the crack or a little wax. I have even used liquid band-aide. Under a broody there is more of a chance of the egg getting broken. Good luck and have fun...
