    I recieved hatching eggs this morning.they were packed well but one broke.
    Of course it has made a mess on the neighboring eggs............
    Not sure what to do? Do I dare rinse them off or?????????????

    I haven't seen this question asked before....I would think that it'd be pretty hard to remove the egg after it's dried without soaking it. .....I'll be watching for the answers on this one!

    No, don't wash it. Just put it in the incubator the best you can.

    I would turn it into an experiment...wash one and leave one and set them both to see what happens. Just be sure you use warm water. [​IMG]
