    Hi guys
    So just returned home and found one of my hatching eggs on the coop floor with a small crack in it. My eggs are currently on day 6 of my broody sitting on them. I immediately picked up the egg and sealed it with candle wax and just wondering if you guys think it would advisable to put it back under the hen or leave it. Also it was cold when I found it that's for the help

    I would put it back under the hen because you never know if it will survive. There might still be a chance.[​IMG]
