    Just received some eggs in the mail. One was smashed. The others look great! Some of the broken egg got on the good eggs and I was just wondering if I should rinse/wash it off? Anyone with experience on this? I'm adding these LS to a line of LS I already have in the bator and really don't want to jeapordize either hatches!
    Thanks for any advice! [​IMG]

    I'd gently remove the sticky egg inners with a damp paper towel and dry in a dry paper towel! BTW, my daughters name is Jannie-Marie!(pronounced if it had just one "n")[​IMG]

    Thanks for your input. I ended up just lightly rinsing the eggy part and drying with paper towel. Just didn't want anything that might attract bacteria in the incubator. Say 'hi' to Jannie Marie for me!
