    Hi I just went to turn a egg in the incubator and I noticed one of the eggs was quite badly cracked it was intact and had no signs of fluid leaking but as i'm not experienced I took it out right away and threw it out (It was definately fertile I checked and it was) right away because I was worried of an infection of something contaminating the incubator. I feel bad now because i'm not sure if it could have been saved, could it have? [​IMG]

    Rarely, so don't feel bad. I've tried beeswax on the crack a few times but so far have been unable to save any. Theoretically it will work.
