    Hi Everyone

    am new here and need some advice

    I have a hen sitting on eggs

    about 10 of them

    one of the eggs was bad and it exploded and now all the eggs have yolk
    and stuff all over them
    is this ok?
    is there a way I can clean them up with out hurting the chicks inside?
    or should I throw them away and start over???



    HELPPPP thanks

    A stiff wire brush might take it off.....don't be too rough, though!

    yea I think you'd be best washing them off. I had that happen to me before exept I didnt clean them and then none of them hatched. [​IMG]
