shez75 Quick lesson in cleaning and emptying eggs for all those #taxidermy #eggcollector folk out there. These are #peacockeggs I scored from a local lady that has a few and the hen seems to lay randomly out of season. I have #blowneggs for the last time after my very clever girl @tam91_ came up with the idea of using a #syringe omgosh this method is soooooo much easier! I have a selection of different sized syringes now for different sizes eggs. I am more then happy to share my experiences with anyone wanting to try this! I #collecting and I must say my #egg collection is looking pretty neat 2mon
  •   sjurdurh Can I ask what you use the toothbrush for?? 2mon
  •   shez75 Sorry I can't seem to tag u @sjurdurh but it's to clean the shells with vinegar. The peacock eggs were really stained from being in the pen for ages. Works a treat. Don't over use the vinegar tho as I think it can dissolve the shell. I cleaned it really well after with warm water. 2mon
  •   sjurdurh Cool. Also you should be careful with brushing, because for some eggs the maculation/spots are very faint and shallow and can actually rub off if you use a hard brush. Really like your tutorial. Not many #oologists kicking around instagram. I also use a syringe when I have one, but if you have an embryo in the egg, and try to get it through the tiny hole, increasing the pressure with a syringe can result in a very loud and smelly explosion. I'm speaking out of experience 2mon
  •   sjurdurh Thanks for the vinegar tip. Didn't know that was a possibility. But since my interest is in scientific use of eggs, I try and use only water when possible. Because nobody knows what scientific interest will be in these collections in 200 years 2mon
  •   shez75 Ewwwww @sjurdurh that is a yukky smelly mess hey. I have had a couple explode bit only with yolk. I did tye water at first and then a mild soapy water but the soiling stains were very bad. I think I would be think twice if it was an expensive egg tho. 2mon

shez75 #ohsocute these little #peachface #lovebird #eggs are my newest addition to my egg collection. So tiny and delicate I broke one blowing them out but this 7 will do nicely 8mon
  •   shez75 @sjurdurh 8mon
  •   sjurdurh Oh no! I forbid you to do any more eggs! Will check if there are any good guidelines online. And oologist IS a name! I found out in a pub quiz, and now I use it as often as I can! 8mon
  •   shez75 Omgosh I knew I should have joined more trivia nights. I will not blow one more egg till I hear back from u haha. Actually I am eggless ATM so ur safe! 8mon
  •   sjurdurh If you look up egg blowing kit "blas-fix" you can order it online. I know it looks like it's made for kids but it works really well. Make the hole anywhere as long as the hole is not on the longest point or the wides point, because if someone like myself comes around in 200 years, they will want to measure length and breadth of the egg, the hole is not in the way. But anyway, this method is what proper museum curators use. 8mon
  •   sjurdurh And yes, I'm an eggshell geek! 8mon
  •   sjurdurh Depending on where you are, you should be careful what species you have eggs of. In UK you'd get into a lot of trouble 8mon
  •   shez75 Awesome I will check it out, thank u!! We have same sort of laws here, but all good, as much as I would love to have some gorgeous little bird eggs, I stick to what's legal. You don't have any eggs for sale do you? @sjurdurh so far I have- ostrich, emu, ameraucana chicken, goose, guinea fowl, bobwhite quail, jap quail, peachface. 8mon
  •   sjurdurh No eggs here sorry! Good luck with your growing collection 8mon
