    Well, I have some eggs in the hatcher. Upon looking at them just a little while ago, one is cracked just below the bigger portion where the air cell is supposed to be. Not pipping, actually cracked. There has been nothing that could have done that. I cant imagine its hatching? If anyone has suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Inward or outward? I did have one that pipped but didn't look like the rest, it looked like a crack too, but it was outward. Can you get a pic?

    Its outward. I wish I could get a pic but the only way would be to take the top off the hatcher and I dont want to do that at this time. My phone camera is lousy at taking pictures in even good conditions.[​IMG]
    Well, it will either hatch...or it wont...but it does make me very curious! This hatch has had a couple of anomalies, one with a chick bleeding to death while it was pipping/trying to hatch. I dont know what caused that either.
