Besides pencil....? Thanks!!!
Quote:I was going to say pencils. sorry!
I used crayon once and put them under my broody duck hen. The crayon was gone by the next day. I try to only use pencil now but have used markers too, permanent and washable.
I was going to use permanant marker... It can't seep through the egg or anythign like that can it??
Quote:I've never seen any traces of the marker on the inside of the egg. I use the thinnest pointed marker possible.
I would say pencil or crayon.
I've used perminant marker and pens, however, because egg shells are porous, they do seep into the pores and there is always that slight risk of being bad.
I have had good luck with a china marker or a black colored pencil
I use edible markers. You can get them at cake supply stores. They're food coloring, but write and look like permanent marker. And, If you have kids, they're fun to use afterwards on all sorts of stuff!
Quote:I agree with the edible markers. I have used them before and had a 100% hatch.
