    I ordered 6 Bronze Turkey eggs and received them through the mail. One of them arrived broken, well only the shell the thin membrane seems to be intact. Can I take the risk putting it into the incubator and keep a close I on it or should I just discard it? [​IMG]

    I have read of people incubating cracked eggs and having them hatch, If the crack isn't to big I thought they used wax to seal it? Somebody might know on the incubating and hatching thread. I've never done it myself. if you do it I would keep a very close eye on it during incubation to make sure it's not going bad.

    Thanks for the reply, I just candled it and it does look dark inside already so I just removed it. It had a huge crack, I have never incubated a cracked eggs before so I was just curious.
