    I dropped an egg while I was turning them this morning, and there's a small crack in it. You can't see the membrane or anything. Is it still safe to incubate or no? I'm on day 8 if that matters

    Yes, you can keep on incubating it! I know that in one of my chicken books it tells you how to seal the cracks! If it only has a tiny crack you shouldn't need to seal it.

    Thank you guys for the reply! I put some candle wax over it. It wasn't a bad crack but it was bad enough to seal I think. That link was really helpful!
