Hi! New birder here, I just have a few questions. (1 Viewer)

So, I found a robin egg on the side of the road (I'm thinking it's an American robin because, yknow, america) but it has a small crack in the shell that I have no idea when it got here (probably today, I have bad control over my strength and might have accidentally hit it). I feel terrible, yes, but I just wanna know if this will stop it from hatching or if it's okay. The internet says it ruins the chances, and I'm feeling a bit screamish, so. I just need help with that, thanks.
Hi strangerisorange and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators. A cracked egg is no longer viable. But the egg was unlikely to hatch anyway, there's no knowing how long it was out of the nest

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.
