    IMG_3339.JPG IMG_3341.JPG Help!!! I went out to the coop this morning and I saw two full sized hens on top of my bantam broody. UGH!!! One of the eggs got pecked or something and another has the tiniest crack imaginable. Is there any way to save them? They were my Easter eggers!!!! :barnie:he They are about 2 weeks old now.

    The one with the tiny crack might be glueable the one with the membrane punctured I don't think is saveable. I might be wrong maybe a more experienced chicken mama knows a trick

    I I've seen a thread on here about melting wax over the hole.

    I've used elmers white glue before just a thin smear.Also as mentioned wax will work, will still be a sketchy egg but it is worth a shot.

    Thank you!!! We will do elmers glue for the small crack and I think we will just toss the big crack.
