    Do you mean, is it "dead" and will not hatch? If you want to know if a cracked egg will hatch or if it is dead I have heard of people using candle wax or other things to try and seal up a cracked egg they are incubating. It can sometimes work, but most times it is already too late. I have never done it, so I hope someone who has tried it can give you better advice than me.
