If the membrane is not cracked, it can still hatch.
You can use a tape and cover the area of dent if needed.

Yes it will hatch.......my birds always crack one of the egg and I have no problem with it as it hatches every time........but as Sreesh mentioned the membrane should not be torn apart.
I use the the hay stack for the nesting material, but my birds stand on it and crack it.....

yes,it will,,-my female accidently opened the shell (-at-about 14 days)-exposing the squabs beak--its still flying around--that was 4 years ago--the parents have grand opening at 18 days,,--squabs don,t hatch like chickens do,,-happy days--sincerely james waller

I would use some craft glue over the area that is dented , the last thing you want is bacteria entering .

You can use fingernail polish too. I wouldnt put much but just enough to cover the crack.

Make sure you offer something like oyster shell grit so you have strong eggs and strong birds.

I have used the shell from a un-fertile pigeon egg. Break off a piece of shell from the same area that was damaged and used the egg-white from the egg as glue.

I am curious as to how mature was the egg when it cracked or dented?? You said the egg was fertile so you probably candled it at 7 days or older? This might sound silly but maybe it is hatching??? I'm not trying to be a jack-a$$ I was just sitting here remembering years ago when I noticed a dented egg in the nest and got all concerned just to find out it was the chick denting the egg and hatching...

But I did not know a cracked egg would hatch so thanks for bringing that up.

Hank

I have used Liquid Paper--"white out"- to cover the crack. The egg hatched.

It would seem there are many methods to seal the egg and stop bacteria from entering the egg .......that is the important thing !

but I also would be careful not to use anything that might be toxic
