I tried to candle the eggs tonight but need a stronger flashlight, do I need to candle or can I just wait it out? The kids were taking Blackie out to go for a poop and forgot to close her area off and another hen jumped in there and cracked 2 of the 10 eggs, so we are down to 8, but they were developing inside, it was sad to have them crack! Do we need to clean the other eggs, 2 got yolk on them and I wiped them off quickly with a dry paper towel. Do I need to do anything to monitor the humidity over the next 10 days or will it all be fine? Any other steps or just wait it out? Thanks for any advice? I am also using straw for nesting material is that OK?
