    Do I wash the eggs that were next to the cracked ones, and now have wet egg goo on them? How?


    Thanks!

    I would gently with a warm cloth try to wipe some off. Do not rub too hard. if doesn't come off leave alone. Just warm water though

    When I had broken ones I just wiped them off. Though none of them hatched because of the horrible handling the post office did.
