    Is it possible to incubate an egg with a hairline crack?

    Yes, but you would want to seal the crack with some wax. Plus make sure you watch it to make sure it doesn't go bad.

    Should I drip candle wax over the crack? [​IMG]

    Quote:Candle wax, melted crayon, doesn't really matter. I have heard some people using nail polish or super glue too, though I don't know how well those would work.
