    I have an egg that has internally piped, but before it did that I noticed there is a crack in the very end of the egg. Probably from my broody shuffling around. I am concerned since I have read that if you make even a pinhole in the air cell end that it could really slow the hatch. Is there something I should do? or just keep watch on it?
