    Aargh, I was trying to set up my second incubator. I was checking the new thermometer, digital type, and when I opened the top of the running bator (with eggs) the new thermometer fell in [​IMG] Well wouldn't you know it cracked one of my eggs [​IMG]
    I am practically in tears. There was a little bit of blood seeping and I waxed it right away, hoping for the best. They are on day 11. DH is telling me not to be too hard on myself, but it was such a STUPID mistake! He thinks I should keep an eye on it and hope for the best. I was just going to toss it. Is there any hope at all, even slight?
    Thanks

    [​IMG] I would say there is almost no chance that chick will make it. I'm sorry!

    But do get a few more opinions.

    Aw man! :-( I'd probably patch it over with candle wax and hope for the best, but keep an eye on it b/c you don't want it to blow up and kill the rest of the eggs in there.

    [​IMG] Awwwww, that is a true bummer. But don't be hard on yourself, accidents do happen. Let us know what you decide to do.

    Since you saw blood I'd say chances of that egg hatching are zero.
