    I would not wash them as you take the "bloom" off the egg that protects them. I would brush them off a bit where the mess is if possible. Then start incubating. Hopefully the eggs were not jarred to bad during shipping, as that can mean the other eggs are damaged inside the shell.

    Just my experience, hopefully someone will chime in with a great way to clean them without removing the bloom.
