Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Domestic_goddess, Apr 11, 2011.
Can I use an egg that has been washed to put under my broody? Or is that not a good idea?
I've heard on here that you should not wash eggs to be hatched. I've also heard ( not on here) that you shouldn't handle them with your hands, but to wear gloves so as not to spread bacteria. It made sense to me. I'm a newbie when it comes to incubating and just found one of my hens ( the first I've had) broody tonite with eggs, so I'm probably not the best one to give advice.
I have hatches thousands of washed eggs. Every big hatchery washes every egg.

Yep it will be fine.
