I have 6 eggs under a broody and all is going well on her 7th day. But a few days ago one of the eggs cracked and the insides of it got on some of the eggs. The mother, then went and had a quick dustbath and came back and some dirt stuck on the eggs!!!!!!!

When it comes to broody hens it is best to just let them do their thing, I think they will be fine as broody eggs are often a little scruffy looking. Relax and let her do what she feels good with.

I second that, broodys have their instincts that guide, they are not bogged down like we are with hatching "rules" to follow, just let her go with the dirty eggs
