Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Johndale, Aug 4, 2008.
i have a little little hole in an egg will that affect any hatchicng?
Is it a fresh laid egg? I wouldnt' try incubate it.
Somebody had this problem they used candle wax Might want to ask a more experianve person and the air sake is fine i think so
I'd be afraid that it would rot in the incubator and ruin the others...so I'd say ditch it.
If it's already in the incubator I'd leave it and candle frequently. I hatched one with a chip over the air cell. If you aren't already incubating it I probably wouldn't try it because it is less likely to hatch and more likely to go rotten.
depends on how faryou are in. If you only have a few day left you can wax or tape it over. It is a 50% 50% chance. THe closer to hatch the better.if it is a fresh egg i wouldnt bother unless it is a really special egg and then keep a close eye on it.
One of my eggs had a little hole in it too when I started incubating. I thought I'd try and let it develop, but it ended up stinking. Although a good few of my eggs ended up that way.
If the hole didn't puncture the membrane, I don't think it would matter, honestly.
Quote:It would really dry out super fast and who knows what bacteria would get in there. A crack I can see being closed up with wax, but a hole - I don't think that will work.
Just toss it. It's not worth the headache of worrying if it'll explode and contaminate the other eggs and the incubator.
its very very little a tiny liitle bit bigger than a crack
