I've read people seal them with candle wax with good results. You don't want bacteria to get in.

I've had that happen to me twice but not as badly cracked. I used electrical tape and they both hatched, but again, mine was not nearly so cracked.

I have one that was apparently cracked when I put it in, I used wax and it is still developing fine.
The bleeding concerns me... can't hurt to try. BTW don't ever candle OVER your other eggs, just in case you drop them you will not lose more than the one. Just and FYI

Please don't use nail polish..... way too many NASTY chemicals in there. Especially since it is bleeding.
