Should I cull a bantam egg (its a partridge cochin bantam) that I received in the mail. I didn't notice at the time but it has multiple crack spots with hairline crack going to them. Is it savable (there is a little chickie in there growing like nothing is happening)? If so what is the best method for that?

Try to coat each crack with candle wax or clear nail polish (nail polish would work better) and try to salvage it. Eggs have been hatched with cracks in them after having polish or wax put on them. Since you are using an incubator probably, use the nail polish. You don’t want it to melt!
Good luck!
