Thought I would pass this along to see if anyone else had ever tried this technique. On day 18 of incubation when it was time to remove the egg turner I accidentally cracked one of the eggs. It was the pointy end and pretty dinged up though no pieces of egg shell fell off and no fluid came out. So figuring I had nothing to lose I put a bit of duct tape on the cracked end and placed it back into the incubator with the other eggs. Low and behold on day 22 the little bugger hatched. It is the biggest and healthiest of the bunch! This is my first time incubating eggs so having any hatch was exciting but having that little one hatch was truly amazing to me. The chick on the left is the little miracle chick a short time after hatching.
