I have a brown sharpie, black lipstick from last halloween, and i think one little pencil. Is their a big no no when it comes to marking on egg shells?? I don't want anything to bleed through or what not and hurt my hatch rate

I mark all the eggs I set with sharpies- different colors to see what is in each set date quickly. If I collect eggs for others, I use a pencil as some people are quite concerned about 'toxic 'effects of sharpies. For me, it is no big deal. JMHO

I just set my first eggs ever to incubate on Sunday and I marked them with a pencil. I wanted to use a colored pencil, but the kids lost them all, so I went with a normal pencil.

I watched my friend Bert scribble on an egg with a ball-point bic today. I didn't think it would stick but it did!
