    I have eggs due to hatch this morning. I woke up to a "Crash" My cat had knocked the incubator down. pipping eggs all over the floor. I quickly put everything back together and laid a warm wet washcloth over the eggs. Most of which broke but not open. I still hear peeping. this can not end well.

    Maybe there is hope! Stick them back in the incubator and heat them up and see what happens.

    Oh, that's bad....poor babies. So sad. That had to hurt. I hope that somehow the universe will be kind and spare them.
