    I just had to post this.
    I cracked (no leakage) a viable egg Sunday night. I had read on here (Thanks BYC) that you can drip candle wax on the crack and it may hatch...it is!
    I'm so thrilled...thought I had killed it!
    Will get pics. will see how well this one does...but it sure is working on coming out! [​IMG]

    :| Update on chick.... it hatched this morning....it seems to have a "hernia". Am watching closely. I feel awful, I'm certain it's because I cracked it! Will post a pic when it dries out...an will show the egg too.

    I have 12 babies now, and 2 more rocking.
    Edited to add, there are 18 total eggs in this batch.
