I have a budgie egg, that is craked, somehow, i think by the parents, but all other eggs are okay. what do i do???

it has a small little tiny crack, with blood, but dryed up, will it survive???

 

my hen layed 5 eggs, but this one is craked, the other 4 are fertile but this one is toooo.

should i chuck it out, or see what happens, at night i see the heart beating inside, i tink it might still be alife

How long ago did she lay it?

I would also wait till someone like Kaz or Maddy post, they 99% know what to do

 

Until then, stay calm

Gday nathan

You could try sealing the crack with a dab of nail polish .but make sure its dry before putting it back under hen.

unless egg is 18 days old which means the lil fella mite be on his way out

goodluck

Generally when there is blood the chick will bleed out and die. If air gets in the chick will stick to the shell and dry out too.

That's what I think to Kaz, I have never got a live chick from an egg that has a crack blood has come out.

I would have thought Nail polish would have harmed the chick

I dont think the chick in the cracked egg will survive. In a day or two you may see some dark marks on the shell indicating a dead in shell chick.

Thanxs Kaz, if yes, that happens, should i remove it from the box?

 

 

Personally, I dont allow any cracked eggs to say in the box for any period of time. A cracked egg leaks...it can stick to the mothers chest or it can stick to other eggs, causing problems.

Hey guys.

Sadly, the hen someone rolled it out f the nest box, and it cracked more:(

I actually saw, the chick inside, which had abit of yolk, and i saw its eyes inside.:(

I am very sad, because my birthday is in a week or so.

But my parents allow me to get anyother pair and cage to breed.

But again, i am very sad for that chick that didn't make it.

All 4 eggs in there now are fertile and looking great, so at least that is a good thing:)

I came across this thread while searching for a solution to a similar problem.

 

My hen laid 6 viable eggs, and the first 3 hatched at 17th day of incubation.

 

I noticed the 4th egg was covered in poop, so to clean it up in order to prevent bacterial infection,

I used a moist tissue paper to wipe it clean. While doing so, a poop seemed glued to the shell. I was able to remove it,

but it came off with a bit of the shell, creating a hole in the egg (the 16th day of incubation).

 

Immediately blood started oozing out of that hole. I looked up for some solutions, and I didn't have nail polish at home.

 

I pressed gently on the open area to stop the bleeding. I placed the egg back in the nest when the bleeding stopped.

 

The chick hatched just now. If it were too weak, it probably would have died inside.

You can see the dried blood inside in the picture above, and on the outside in the picture below.

I'm not happy I made a mistake, but I'm happy that the chick survived. The membrane may have repaired itself a bit.

 

So if someone else comes across this thread due to experiencing a similar problem, I hope they'll give the egg a chance to survive instead of disposing of the eggs immediately. Every life is precious, and miracles do happen. :)

I think it's best to wait till the inside of the egg turns greyish indicating a dead in shell chick before disposing of it. And if this happens near to the hatch date, it's worth the shot of giving it a chance. It might not be the same in the case of an underdeveloped chick.

.But if the crack can be fixed with nail polish, it might be worth waiting to make sure the chick is dead before disposing of the egg.
