Hello Everyone, I had a Buff Orpington hen go broody on me last month. She started with five eggs, and even though she is in her own fenced pen, she was down to three yesterday morning. No sign of the other two. Then I checked on her again in the afternoon and there was only two. There is obviously something getting the eggs, so last night I snatched up the last two and put them in my incubator in the house. The problem I have is the eggs have dried yolk all over them, so I can't decide whether or not to clean them off. If the chicks are still alive, they should hatch this coming Thursday or Friday. If I leave the dried yolk on the eggs, the shell will have trouble "breathing", but if I take it off, I will remove the bloom and could infect the chicks. Any thoughts?
