    I'd take a toothbrush and get the worst of the dirt off. Not a full wash but it enough to get the poo off. If I was to sell eggs, I'd have been embarrassed to send you any like that. Not to mention, is that how they were shipped? That is not how a decent seller protects them from breakage. I would have been collecting them frequently and sending only the cleanest of the clean eggs and would have bubble wrapped each egg individually and sent them in an egg carton to keep them from moving around too much during shipping.

    [​IMG] This person must not be experienced in selling hatching eggs. IF I had to do that method because I had no other choice, that box would be going in a bigger box with more bubble wrap to keep it from moving around. You are lucky that you didn't have scrambled eggs when you opened up the box.

    Your eggs are fine I hatch eggs that are covered with poop and get a 50/50 hatch rate.

    Yes I agree but the eggs that I hatch have layers of poop.
