I had an accident with my eggs when I candled them. I have 6 Buff Orpington Bantem miniture eggs and I am on day 16. My thermometer sliped out of my hand when I was lifting it off the eggs to candle them. And as you have guessed the top part of my egg cracked. The top is missing. Im not sure if my eggs have any chicks growing or if they are just not fertile. I looked inside the egg. The membrain has not been pierced. But it did look as though in the air sack there was a yolk in there. It was yellow and it touched the membrain. I couldnt see any other dark colours in there. Not sure why it was in the air cell? I have tryed to receal the whole with clingfilm and hope I have not done to much damage. Im just prying that it will be ok if there is a chick inside it. Has anyone had this happen to them? What was the out come?
