Several (3 out of 10) Maran eggs that I have under my 2 broody Cochins got broken on day 2 somehow - who knows? I think they squabbled over them - though the rest have remained intact so far - now on day 4. I cleaned up the nest as best I could, and gently wiped the egg off the shells of the intact eggs, but wonder if anyone has experience with this - whether this will create problems with hatch or survival. I'm reluctant to wash the eggs, and my thinking is that in a "natural" environment, there would be occasional breakage that would hopefully not cause the loss of the whole clutch for any bird. Thoughts? Recommendations? Thanks!
