Hi, all.

I found an easy way to remove bad D. azureus eggs from a clutch without disturbing the other eggs too much.

1) Using a clean turkey baster, squeeze the bulb and place the tip around the bad egg.

2) Now, keeping the bulb squeezed, press the tip against the petri dish in which the eggs are laid and slowly slide the egg away from the rest of the clutch.

3) When the egg is obviously dissociated from the gel surrounding the rest of the clutch, release the bulb and suck the bad egg up into the baster!

It's very easy, and it causes very little trauma to the rest of the clutch. Your results may vary, of course, but this seems to work for me!

Hope I've helped!

I should mention that all of this assumes your frogs have laid eggs in a petri dish, or its functional equivalent. I don't think this would work too well if they decided to deposit eggs in a brom!
