Hi,

It's day 18 and as I was sorting the incubator out for lockdown I dropped one of the eggs. The egg has some cracks on the pointy end, no fluid is coming out. The air cell has also gotten a lot bigger on one side. I candled the egg and the chick is still moving around. Is it ok to keep it in the incubator or will it go bad and affect the rest of the eggs?

I had candled the egg just before I dropped it and it wasn't as big as it is now. It now looks like a saddled air cell that you get through eggs going through the post.

I'll try the candle wax, thank you
