    Thanks for the Canning Wax suggestion. I just got six eggs, one is slightly cracked on one side-at the top where the air sac will develop.

    [​IMG] I'm assuming that you are planning on incubating these eggs. Cover the crack and keep a close eye on this egg. If upon candling it is not developing or if it starts oozing, remove it immediately so that it does not 'explode' and ruin the others.
