Is there anyway to wash the dirt off? They look ok (if that’s just dirt)

How long ago were they laid? Wait atleast 1 week to candle them and tell if they are fertile. If they grow mold or collapse they are likely infertile.

An egg, whether fertile or not, can still collapse if the humidity isn’t high enough.

An infertile egg will glow yellow when candled. After a few days - week, you should see a red dot/red veins starting to form in the egg if the egg is fertile. If it a females first breeding season, there is a good chance that the eggs she is laying are infertile....

They look pretty good. Normally infertile eggs are long and not as full looking.

From these pictures though, there is no way for us to tell for sure. If you could get a picture of you candeling the eggs, we would be able to give you a more accurate answer.

Do NOT try to wash them off .. usually if you look close right after they are laid you can see the little red "bullseye" but its not easy .. after a week or two you should see veins. I’d recommend just leaving them, be careful when you do candle them not to flip them over or you’ll kill them .. put a little marker line on the tops so you know and in a week or two they should glow pretty red for you :)
