    The thread may have been moved by a moderator? [​IMG]Anyways... I can't think of any reason why an egg would crack in an incubator (unless it exploded, and you would definitely know what caused it). I would assume your gut is right, and a sibling has gotten into them.

    How big are the eggs? if their larger the egg could have fallen down and cracked. Depending on how old your eggs are You could try candling eggs. You take a flashlight up to the egg and if you see veining your eggs are ok. Be careful not to touch the eggs much. The oil on our skin clogs the pours on the egg. I hope that helps. PM me if you need more help.

    Air won't crack them, but hands certainly can. Bumping them together or dropping them can crack the eggs, then they have almost no chance of hatching and a good chance of going bad and stinky.
