    hi , make sure the temp is steady at 99.5 degrees. I use a thermometer and a hygrometer . You want 50% humidity for day 1-18, then 70-80% for the last few days. as for the crack i would cover the crack with some candle wax (warm) and hope for the best [​IMG] for you , i have had 2 hatch from a homemade bator so dont feel it wont work , kay
