    I have 4 eggs I’m trying to save... never hatched anything before.... they’ve been in the incubator since Friday the 14th... I put scotch tape on them. I have 4 good eggs in there with them also and I’m having people tell me the cracked ones will not hatch and to take them out or the cracked ones will pop in the incubator and cause the good eggs to not hatch? HELP!!! I should also add the eggs are just a little cracked... they’re pretty bad... lots of cracks and missing shell pieces in some spots but the membranes are still intact

    Get rid of the cracked eggs. Once they are cracked bacteria gets in the eggs and starts to grow. By leaving them with the good eggs you risk infecting all the eggs.
