    I just received 9 silkie eggs in the mail today - very excited!!!! My first time trying to incubate & hatch... I read in several places that dirty eggs will cause problems. 6 out of 9 eggs are nice and clean but three have some poo stuck all over them. How much is too much? Should I just disregard the dirty ones to make sure they don't contaminate the others? Thanks!

    Try wiping with a dry cloth or paper towel as much as you can ....do not wash them....if its just a peck or so of poo thats not too bad...filthy is another matter....
