Some of my eggs get dirty......is it ok to wash the eggs i want to hatch not eat?????
I just scrub them a little with cold water. Works good.
Quote:You are not supposed to use cold water. The cold water closes the pours on the egg and sucks in bacteria. Use warm water that is warmer than the egg. I use a soulution of water and Brinsea Incubation Disinfectant and dip my eggs for 2-3 seconds and the put them into the incubator.
Oh sorry, I misread what you wrote. I thought you said you wanted to eat and not hatch. My bad.
Quote:lol. When I eat my eggs I was them very good with cold water. lol
Do not wash hatching eggs.
Quote:If the eggs are very dirty, there is no problem with washing the eggs. I do not wash my chicken eggs, because they are very clean, not duck eggs I will dip/spray with the Brinsea solution.
Well.....these are chicken eggs....i have nice clean straw in my nest boxes....but the run is dirty due to all the rain....i guess the mudd on thier feet is whats getting the eggs dirty...so can i wash the eggs...or not???? I want to be able to hatch them.
I would was them with warm water right before you put them in the incubator.
Thanks sooo much for the info!!!! Wish me luck!
