Do you set eggs if they have a tiny hairline fracture?

    hello, probably a noobish question but i was just wondering if an egg has a very small hairline fracture would you still try and incubate it?

    If I'd paid big money for it or if it was something that was hard to come by I might give it a try. Otherwise I'd toss it.
