    I just got a shipment of 14 eggs in the mail. One of those eggs was cracked. Can I save it (i.e put super glue on it or put some tape over it?). Or should I just throw it out?

    Thanks

    No super glue. Toxins in the glue are very bad. I have used melted candle wax or parafin(not sure of the spelling) wax if the crack is not too bad. It's a toss up sometimes they make it sometimes they don't. Good luck.
