Yes, I did the research.
The research said that one could not blow them out and that over time they would dry out from the inside.
The research was clearly wrong.
I set the basket on top of an obscure book shelf, and today, as I was searching for a field guide to wild flowers, found the vile smell. Not like rotten eggs, oh no no! All cheesy-like and stinky. I carefully removed the eggs into a zip-lock bag and discovered that one of them had leaked and had under it: Maggots. Oh joy.
Needless to say, I am down a basket as well. Hello dumpster, good-bye Pysanka eggs!
