    Welcome to BYC!!! [​IMG]

    I wish I could also help, but all I can say is that you must look at the severity of the crack. If it is only visible when candling, it should hatch all right, but if it is very noticable, rather throw it out.

    Good luck with this project, and let us know how it goes. [​IMG]

    I just saw the age of the eggs, so I'm editing my post to ask where you got these eggs? Are you sure they're fertile? And what are you using for an incubator?

    How far overdue are the eggs?( How many days since you put them in?)
