This is my first time using an incubator to hatch chicks. My neighbor was throwing out an old still air incubator and i asked if i could have it. So I ordered shipped eggs from Ebay and now i have 30+ eggs ready to hatch. I am on day 18 and Im going into lockdown tonight. The eggs should be hatching July 3rd or 4th. I hope its the 4th. But when I got the eggs two of the eggs were cracked. I was going to toss them out, but I just couldnt. So I decided to tape the eggs on the cracked parts and put them in. The egg with a little crack never developed. But the one with a huge crack has devloped. So my question is should i take the tape off before lockdown or keep it on? Will i break the egg if i take the tape off? Or if i leave it on will the chick ne strong enough to rip through the tape when it hatches? Has anyone ever done this? Any Advice would be great. This is my first hatch using an incubator, so cross your fingers for me. I Know the pictures arent that great, but Any help on what to do will be great. Thanks Ahead of time.
