    Today when I filled up the water cup at the bottom of my bator, I accidently got one of the eggs wet, will this be a problem?
    Also I have one other question, does it matter if eggs are touching in the bator?

    Thanks in advance!!!!![​IMG]

    It will not hurt the egg to get wet. People used to spray eggs with water several times a day rather than using water trays like we do now.

    Eggs touch and bounce off each other in the nest and they come out just fine.

    So don't worry about it. We are much more gentle with eggs than the typical hen is.
