    Default Dented eggs


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have 2 fertile eggs and they are both dented I accidentally got them wet for a little while yesterday and today is only there second day of incubation. If anyone has any ideas of how to puff them back up I would greatly appreciate it.7CCCB447-2A89-404B-9056-B70CF450A817.jpg7CCCB447-2A89-404B-9056-B70CF450A817.jpg

    I should probably add that the eggs were dented from being out in direct heat from a zoomed lamp so the water didn’t actually dent them but I’m unsure of how to get them undented

    A trick i learned from another member here was to fold up a paper towel an get it damp (not too wet) and try to suspend it over the eggs. Ive done this on both sets of eggs i got and after 2 days they were back to normal an i removed the paper towel

    No clue.. I try not to let em get too wet tho the paper towel has dripped on em a couple times with seemingly no ill effect.

    I use egg trays and im able to keep the paper towel from touching the eggs.. Maybe you could use tooth picks to make a tent so to speak?
