I just recently won some FREE eggs in a contest that lockedhearts held. They were shipped out Monday, I recieved them a few minutes ago. All arrived safely! Great packing job! I got: 1 blu orp 1 buff/rir 1 BR 1 buff 2 F 2 BA 2SS 1 unknown ( I think the markings on it say, piix ) Anyway, I am so excited. I now have 18 eggs to go in my new homemade bator,( Got 6 Welsummer eggs from tamsflock yesterday,to go in with the others). However I have a question: A few of the eggs I have are pretty dirty, Do I need to lightly rinse these before they go in the bator? How long do I need to let them set to relax before in put them in? My Thanks go out to Lockedhearts, her anonymous doner & to tamsflock, Ya'll are the best! My father & I truely appreciate all your generosity !!!!!
