I have my hova bator doing a test run before my eggs arrive in a few days. Everything seems to be very consistent so far. My question is when the eggs arrive I beleive I turn them bottoms up in a carton and let them sit 12-24 hours before putting them in the bator. I read that your not supposed to put in dirty eggs, should I clean them? if so how? I don't think your suppossed to wash them. Also after I candle them,(I am recieving brown eggs, I read that you cannot candle green eggs, Is this true as I have many EE's I will be hatching from later.) If after 2 weeks and I don't see anything when I candle the eggs am I supposed to take the eggs out because they can explode and ruin the hatch for the other eggs? How do you do that if you can't candle green or blue eggs? thanks so much I did a search on here and a google search and I got nothing really specific.
