    Hi guys,

    my new 10 egg incubator arrived today! Just wondering - should I clean it before I put my eggs in? Or will it be alright?

    If so, how should I clean it? Many thanks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I would give it a clean just to be on the safe side. You don't know what could have got in there during the manufacturing process. You could use an egg disinfectant or an anti bac washing up liquid, that's what I use for cleaning out and it's been fine.

    Good luck with your new bator!
