    So here I am, day three of incubation and I already mess it up. I was going to turn my eggs in the morning and one slipped out of my hand and banged off the incubator. It now has a crack on it, not deep no fluid came out. Ughhh I can't believe I dropped it [​IMG]

    if you need I picture I can provide one.

    these are duckeggs

    I've heard of people using wax to seal a crack in a hatching egg. Most of the cracked eggs hatch without issues once repaired.

    One of mine got a scratch and puncture wound when it was laid. I used white crayon wax since its non toxic. Pipped this morning do we were at least able to get full term! Give it a try!
