My broody is on 2 eggs. Another hen laid an egg in that nest ( infertile, I don't have a roo)
Anyway that egg got broke and contaminated my fertile eggs. I wiped them off on the hay and
fluffed up the nest. Will they be ok????
I just had 20 absolutely filthy eggs hatch in the bator. I wouldn't worry one bit if I were you. and also it's not contaminated if it was a fresh egg the only way it would be is if the egg sat for multiple days and was rotted!!!!!!!!!!
Last year I had a broody hen setting on 4 duck eggs. On day 5 or so she broke one of the duck eggs and got all of the other eggs all ucky. I didn't clean any of them off, cause I've heard you don't want to take off the "bloom." All three of the remaining duck eggs hatched!!!
