You can hatch eggs that have been carefully washed and dried just fine. You can also hatch refrigerated eggs. Before I heard all the hype about hatching eggs, I used to hatch mine right out of the fridge, ha, ha, washed and all. Since then I have had great hatch rates with eggs that are either not dirty to start with or have been washed clean, when they go in dirty (like some people send hatching eggs) they never hatch in my experience. So I am starting to think the whole "not washing them and stroring them at room temperature" thing is an old wives tale maybe, based on little scientific evidence. I think I might want to do further research on this.
