I patched a crack in a chicken egg set 3-10 early on with Newskin. The embryo is clearly alive and kicking on candle. But the aircell is getting really big, way larger than the others.

I've been running a touch higher than I want to be on humidity. Now lowering to mid 30s and wondering if there's anything I could do to help the cracked egg. Seems it's going to get worse fast as I lower humidity? Thanks, my first incubation in many years, forgot whatever I knew!

can you use a birthday candle, and seal the crack better with the melted wax?
I could give that a try. I sealed what was obviously cracked but can see it's a bigger network of cracked area when I candle. I'll try the wax suggestion tonight when I can really see the whole web of crack. Thank you!
