    I was moving an egg from one broody to another. When I set the egg under the new broody I heard a crack. On inspection I found a tiny crack. Will the egg still hatch? I'm not sure when it started incubating.

    Run a bead of Gorilla glue down the crack and give it a chance.

    The egg somehow sealed itself. But I found another that has a jagged crack. Would some other kind of glue work?

    Super glue is used in some kinds of human surgery. I don't know if it's a special glue though.
