These are great and right around $20
You can also get a 12 v lighter socket with battery clamps already on the other end for like $10
Whoa!! Those are really dirty. No way can you put them in the bator like that!!
You are still going to risk bacteria getting inside if you wash them though. But in my opinion, the lesser of 2 evils in your situation is to wash them in warm water. Not cold it will pull the nasty stuff into the egg. Not too hot, it can damage the embryo. I would ask for some clean replacements from the seller myself.
How's yer head feeling today bama? ;-)
Like this one
thank you sweets!
Terrible but thanks for asking
Yes, you can safely wash them. Use warm water to get the stuff off--the theory is that using water warmer than the egg will not force bacteria into the egg--It's a thermal properties thing.
Then rinse them in a weak bleach solution--1TBL bleach per gallon of water, contact time one minute.
This will not remove the bloom and I have cleaned dirty eggs--they hatched fine for me.
