    Eggs due to hatch today but.... Just lefted her up just to check as this is only my 2nd time so it is exciting but none have hatched but it looks like one has poped and it was rotten and now they are all very dirty so do i clean them or leave them?

    Thanks

    i would carfully clean them and watch for pipped ones as a rotten egg that has busted can contamanait the remaining eggs and cause them to not hatch and while you are cleaning you can candle to see what the rest look like
