    Does anyone set eggs that have a crack in them? We have a salm fav egg that has just a little hole on the air sac end. Do you guys think we could set it and still have it hatch? Thanks, Suz

    It's possible, but seems to me there would be so much more room for bacteria growth which could then cause it to explode and contaminate the entire bator that I wouldn't do it.

    But thats just me...

    Put some tape on it so that it doesn't dry out. It is worth a try [​IMG]

    I've read on here where you can put super glue or drip wax on cracks. I don't know how big the hole is but maybe dripping wax would work.
