    [​IMG] The incubator was accidently bumped and 2 eggs(black east indie ducks)day 19 of 28 are now cracked, no fluid seems to be leaking but one of the air cells appears to be larger and dipping down? I don't know if maybe the aircell ruptured, is that a possibility? I am very new to this so now quite sure what to do, but very disappointed to get so far along and mess it up. Any advice

    melt some wax to put over the crack and put it back in the bator. It might make it, it might not

    I don't have enough experience to comment, other than to say, don't give up on them. We had an egg with a slight crack in it from the beginning. It was right at the air sac, and slightly affected the shape of the air sac, but "Crackers" hatched out perfectly on day 28 [​IMG]

    Thanks ! Wax is on and they are back in the bator. There is still plenty of movement so I still hopeful
