    I'm on day 12 and as I was candling, I got startled and dropped an egg. It didn't break open but I cracked it pretty good. What can I do!!?? Thank you to anyone who can help.

    Thank you! I did some researching online and found these options:
    Elmers glue
    Nail polish
    Masking tape (grey tape)
    Candle wax
    Do nothing

    I favor candle wax, however, there's a small piece of the shell missing. I'm afraid to put anything on it in fear I may penetrate the membrane which is still intact.

    I've decided to let it sit for a day then rectangle to see if there is still life.

    Thank you again for responding!
