    I feel awful, I was just candling some of the 8 day old turkey eggs and one just slipped. It didn't crack to bad, but I don't want to risk it and it has huge veins. . .What can I use to help or save it? Do I just throw it away? Thanks

    You can use a little bit of glue or wax to cover up the crack if it's really small, just keep an eye on it in case it dies so it doesn't get stinky or explode.
