    Well, I was putting my eggs in lockdown and I accidentlu dropped it (and with 20 kids watching at school). There was a bit of blood but I placed the egg back in the incubator anyways to deal with it when the kids were not watching. After school I was surprised to hear the chick moving inside![​IMG] I'm really hoping he will be okay!

    I just hatched a cracked call duck egg. I cracked it early on and put tape on it. It hatched without any issues. I will add though that when it cracked, the membrane did not break. I wish you good luck [​IMG]
