    I think this is where this should go.....

    For whatever reason, dh let the kids turn the eggs this morning. Well, one was dropped and cracked. parts of the shell are gone [​IMG]. We are only on day 17. Can this little guy be saved?? [​IMG] If so, what do I need to do??

    i read someone was in the same situation on an earlier thread. someone suggested place tape over the crack and trying to keep the egg from drying the membrane out. try to keep the membrane moist. you might can help the chick hatch out a littlle early. but as long as it doesn't stick to the shell it may be ok. good luck!

    Unfortunately, it passed last night [​IMG]. They must have dropped it on something sharp as the membrane was punctured [​IMG].

    Thanks anyway
