    I'm just starting a batch of 33 eggs in my incubator and I have one that looks like had another egg dropped to heavy on it when was collected and dented/cracked the shell. Its not leaking or anything so my question is can I trust it and put in incubator too ?

    you can try and put a bit of wax on it to seal it and see if it will still develop.
