    I got some turkey eggs to incubate and they have a little dirt on them what am I suppose to do?

    I hatch duck eggs, very dirty sometimes, even though they have a stinkin' nestbox...anyhoo! I just brush them off with a dry paper towel, there is some that won't come off this way, but I don't believe in washing eggs. Some folks do, I just don't...mom puts a "bloom" on there for a reason so I'd rather just leave it. [​IMG]
