Re: cracked egg, please help..URGENT!

How far along are the eggs?

Typically it means the hen threw them out due to infertility. I would throw it away so it doesn't cause any sort of bacteria.

Re: cracked egg, please help..URGENT!

do you think she threw them out?

i think maybe cause she has 3 eggs in all, the first two eggs, is inside the nest but the last one is outside and cracked..what do you mean how far along are the eggs?

she layed eggs with an interval of about 36hrs or less but not lesser than or about 24hrs..

Re: cracked egg, please help..URGENT!

If the crack is recent and there are no signs of seepage, you can clean the area with distilled water and swabs then use non-toxic school glue for the cracks.

Good luck

Re: cracked egg, please help..URGENT!

Finger nail polish is better, smooth finish with thin layer. You don't want a rough finish cause the parents might pick at it. Good luck!

Re: cracked egg, please help..URGENT!

I've never heard of repairing an egg. I meant how long have the eggs been there, are they past the hatch date? I would think nail-polish would be bad for the embryo if it did survive. Eggs in captivity do not typically accidentally shove eggs out, they usually do it because they are infertile.

For all the eggs that have hatched from me doing clear nail polish repair I have to disagree with you. I found the method from a old breeders book years ago when I used to breed. You only put a light layer on the cracked part only. The poster said it was a new egg that was just laid, not a old infertile egg.
