    I was candling eggs the other night and accidentally dropped one!!! Acting quickly I grabbed some super glue and glued all the cracks and holes up. I watched the egg until it dried seeing movement until putting it back under the hen. I just checked again tonight and it's still kicking inside of there. Has anyone ever done this and successfully hatched a healthy chick? Are the chances of it going full term and hatching likely? I am truly amazed that it's made it this long. Just thought I'd share this cool story..

    Never under a hen but yes, I've dropped two seperate eggs and grabbed clear packing tape and covered them up. Both went on to hatch healthy in my incubator.
