    Hi everyone,
    This is my first post and have looked up many an answer before but just can´t see to find one for this question.
    I dropped my wrist watch into my incubator while turning the eggs today and it cracked one of my eggs. The thing is i don´t know weather to leave it or not. They are duck eggs and are five days off from me stopping to turn them and nine days before they are due to hatch, Any ideas on what to do please and quick.
    I know i won´t be wearing my wrist watch again when turning eggs.
    Thanks

    Hello, if the membrane of the egg is still intact, then you could seal the crack with a little bit of candle wax and just keep incubating it.

    Good luck with your little ducklings!
