    I put my "mystery " eggs in the bator, and DH decided he needed to move it. When he did, one of the eggs shell cracked. Will it still hatch? Or should I just get rid of it before it starts to smell? It's only been in there about 5 days.

    How badly did it crack? If the membrane is still intact and the crack is not severe you can patch it up with a little melted candle wax, birthday candle preferably as the wax melts at a lower temperature.

    I think The membrane is okay, nothing has leaked out anyway.
