I know it is a controversial topic, however I have had some problems with omphalitis and blood rings in the past trying to incubate for my friend who pretty much demands I hatch their filthy eggs. I have already decided to wash and sterilize the eggs this time around, but need some advice on what products and procedures to use. I have heard of bleach, vinegar, and peroxide solutions being used, but not specific ratios or details. I will be happy to hear from anyone who washes their eggs before incubation. I know about the eggs natural 'bloom', but it really hasn't seemed to work for me thusfar---plus these eggs are pretty gross and I don't want keep spreading the germs by hand turning the eggs. Thanks everyone!
