    Hello!

    I wanted to write an article on cleaning eggs and how to keep them from getting dirty. So please post any method(s) you use on getting your eggs nice and clean looking. Are there any ways to get the stains out of white eggs? Should you clean eggs that your going to incubate, if so how? Also I would appreciate if you could post some nice pictures of your eggs that I can use in my article.

    Thank you!!

    Well, I always just scrub mine with a brush and some warm water.[​IMG]

    Here are some pictures I took of our first goose egg.

    Thanks! :)

    For some reason I always thought goose eggs were brown.

    Love those Easter eggs!

    Keeping nests clean is key for hatching eggs.
