Morton, what do you mean cleansed?
Jok has given me plenty of advice and trying his method I have now got 15/16 eggs fertile. I haven't cleaned any of the eggs before putting them in the incubator, do you think this will cause issues?
Washed thoroughly with a quality cleansing agent,i used to use anything that sterilised baby bottles.You can incubate 50 hen eggs that are not cleansed and you will lose a small proportion,if the incubator is not sterilised you will lose an higher proportion at the next hatch and so forth.You can set an incubator up to take 2 eggs of something far more valuable,in conservation terms and you cannot afford the percentages that un-cleansed eggs offer,especially to the incubator.
