I picked up a set of eggs but they smell strange. Like Chinese medicine mixed with maple syrup.
I'm going to wash them with ACV, is there anything else bird safe that I can use to get rid of the smell.
They cost me 2gbp for 10 from a UK aviary.
They feel good, like they feel the same weight as a lovebird egg. They are a slight different shape, more oval, less egg. But hopefully Aldora won't notice.

Here´s the link if anyone in the UK is looking for lovebird or budgie eggs:

I have put things in a container with baking soda which can absorb odors. But Have not done it for fake eggs

I don´t think baking soda is safe for birds :(
My birds lick their eggs.

Do you have Dawn dish soap there? I would imagine that would give them a good cleaning

We have fairy, I gave them as wash but they still have a smell...
It´s not a chemically smell, but I would be happier if they were odourless

Cat litter. Just throw some in the bag with the eggs. Use plenty. Should be OK with a good scrub after.
