    Well, my Indian Runner eggs (shipped) I've had excellent results with. I think 12 of 16 grew babies, 1 passed about a week or so ago, nd the rest are thriving. The bator got bumped last night and one of the eggs got a smash bout the size of a large pea with 2 cracks coming off it about half an inch each. I didn't have the heart to just toss it and didn't see anything leak out, so I put a thin layer of Elmer's Glue over the damaged areas. This morning the duckling is still very active (yay!) so I added one more coat of glue. Just hoping he makes it till hatch!

    Good luck! Sorry about your scary accident, but I think that you did what you could (gluing). Keep us updated!
