I bought duck hatching eggs on ebay. The auction was for 12+ eggs and possibly a chicken egg. The package came today and I got 14 eggs in there. Unfortunately 4 of the eggs were broken. One was smashed and the other 3 cracked. I ended up with 9 whole duck eggs and 1 chicken egg.

Will the 3 eggs that are just cracked worth putting in the incubator, or should I just throw them?

Hairline cracks can be repaired, although hatch rates might be lowered.

Eat the others.
