    So over night i went from 12 to 10 eggs and I just candled them and they all seem fertile. But i found 3 more with hair line cracks (all fertile). I ended up throwing them out because I heard eggs with hair line cracks can explode... Did i do the right thing or should i have left them in?

    I would have put clear nail polish or wax on the cracks and gave them a shot.
