    Somehow one of my broodys eggs broke. All of the other eggs are covered in dry goop from that egg.It didnt smell bad or anything. Will the others be ok? I think they have about a week left...[​IMG]

    I've wiped the others with a damp towel til I got the sticky off. Mama will eat the shell and anything she can get hold of, but she can't clean the eggs of stuck on stuff.
