    We just received 3 dozen shipped eggs, and 11 were broken, some in each of the 3 cartons. My wife picked them up at the post office and gently wiped them. Is there any thing else we can do ? There is still some dried yolk on most of them. I have some Oxine that I think it might be worth spraying them down with, then let them air dry?? Any other ideas??? Thanks .......stan

    My own personal opinion is do not spray them with anything. You can gently wipe them off or use a dry scrub sponge to get the dried yolk off. It is ok if there are still some specks of dried yolk. I have set many a dirty egg from the pens with no issue with hatchability. But that is just my opinion.
