For those of you with Dragon Eggs...  
Some facty things:

It's good to collect all those views and clicks. Just be aware your egg isn't eligible to hatch until 3.5 days into its seven day incubation period countdown to death. When you adopt abandoned eggs instead of finding them in the cave entrance, an extra day gets added to whatever the countdown reads to make it easier for you to save the poor little abandoned hatchling.

Here are some sites you can register with to get views and clicks:

Dragoncave fansite

The Cracking Egg

Dragon Fix

Just make sure you click in return. Some sites have rules about that.

Q: My egg is cracking/has a big hole. Is it sick/did it run away?
A: That is perfectly normal. In fact, cracking is a good thing, as it is a sign that your egg is beginning to hatch. An egg with a crack or a hole on it doesn't mean it will hatch, but you're certainly on the right track! The only time a change in the egg's image indicates a problem is if the egg becomes split in half horizontally.

Q: What is forcing/how do I force my egg?
A: When you attempt kill an egg, there is a small chance that, if the egg is developed enough, the hatchling inside will survive the fall. If this happens, then it is considered that you forced the egg to hatch prematurely. However, it is possible that forcing a hatchling out of its egg will scare it enough that it runs away from you.

Q: How did my egg die?
A: There are several ways an egg can die. The most common is that it ran out of time. From the moment you get your egg, you have 7 days to help it hatch or the egg will not survive. Eggs can also die from soft shells, which can be caused by several different conditions. (See: "Why is my egg or hatchling sick?" or the Soft Shell Guide)

Q: How do I revive my dead egg?
A: You can't. You can only revive hatchlings and adults.

Q: Why is my egg or hatchling sick?
A: Egg soft shell and hatchling sickness is caused by abnormal conditions in the egg. There are three causes of disease:

* Having too many views compared to unique views. If your egg or hatchling has over 10 times more views than unique views, then it will become sick.
* Having more clicks than unique views
* Getting too many views/unique views/clicks in a short period of time.

Removing the sickness is simply a matter of removing whatever conditions are causing it. For example, if your egg has more clicks than unique views, then in order to get rid of the disease, then you need to get enough unique views so that the number of clicks becomes lower than the number of unique views.

I highly recommend registering for the Dragon Cave forum, just to read the FAQ. It answers many questions. :D
