    So... I ordered eggs from a reputable supplier from eBay, good hatch rates etc. Left the eggs to settle for a day, took them to.the broody hen... My child dropped the entire tray 3 intact, one smashed to bits, 2 with cracks/smahed bit. No leakage from the 2 with cracks, is it worthwhile putting it under the hen?

    I wouldn't bother. Especially being in a nest box, bacteria and such is going to get into the egg and you risk a very nasty mess.
