Hay There! Im new to this forum, and have some experience with raising/incubating of various avian species, which Ill get into later, on account of I run my small farm w/mostly equines all by myself-and Im WAAAY busy. I have a big grip (like 20 maybe) of eggs I collected after I blew off collecting the eggs for 5 days-(wanted to see if someone might sit the eggs-but no luck there), and had put them in the grain scoop on the kitchen floor- I just happened to 'find' them today, and I want to know- can I try and incubate these eggs-( I have a hatch of 20 going on right now, mostly just to 'stabilize and test out' the cheesy 10$ Styrofoam incubator I got from a friend-) they've been sitting in the plastic scoop on a concrete floor in say about 50 degree temp for about 2 weeks- I know for a fact there's NO WAY the temp got over 60-( floor is concrete, and I live in the Pac. NW- so its not hot at all) ??? ALSO- my 1st hatch isnt due for 'action' till the 18th, till then, theres no room in the incubator for them. ALSO- they are really REALLY 'poopy' and I would like to wash/ possibly scrub then off- should I do so- or just pull of the stuck-on straw and leave them be- and what is an appropriate home made egg wash? a little bleach in water- or??? This seems to be a VERY informative forum, so I know somebody out there knows whats up, and I look forward to all the advice you can give me on these 2 topics- like I said , I do have some experience with birds...mostly pheasant but my X boyfriend did have chickens also for sitting purposes.( he was a great learning experience for exotic and endangered pheasant and doves, but a terrible mate.) with sincere thanks in advance, Kim Nord 'Nordwest23'
