Re: ****January**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

I forgot to tell ya'll, we had an "incident" the other day and Easton cracked two eggs, but just the outer shell. I popped a bit of electrical tape on them and prayed! And not even kidding but they are both doing wonderfully and I can see them moving! I tossed 4 of the eggs, one I am still not sure about though so going to check again tomorrow night and decide. It's day 6 right now.

oh my goodness! How cracked are they? Like pieces of shell off? Or just hairline? If it's hairline you can paint the cracks closed with fingernail polish and just be vigilant when they start to hatch, make sure they're able to get thru the repaired part!

Exactly what Liz said. Clear polish and watch close. Especially at hatch time.

Well you could sell the ones you decide not to keep though, so really it's more of an investment/profit
