I have Silkie and Silkie cross eggs. I also have a variety of purebred LF mostly cross eggs.. I have read opposing ideas on where to keep eggs before putting them in the incubator. I have a 23 that are in our guest bathroom. Of these, one was so dirty I wiped it with a damp paper towel.Several, but not all, my hubby washed well and put in the fridge. The others were just put in the room. None were immersed, none were washed with anything but well water. In general.. 1. Will a wiped one hatch? 2. Will a washed with water one hatch? 3. What about eggs that have been scrubed with a light scrubby sponge to wash them off with? 4. What about eggs kept in the fridge? 5. We keep our house at about 68 during the day and 60 at night...is that too warm/cool?Do Silkie eggs hatch at 21 days, too? Thanks!!
