if they dont look like healthy mycellium...toss em. Its really not worth the chance.

are the greyish ones colinizing faster, if so most likely a contam

Is the greyish stuff fuzzy?, slime?, or just a grey hue in the mycellium? Is there an odour?....If not sure toss them, dont take a chance.
You can get all anti-virus and quarentine them in a mini terrarium that is away from the main batch to see what results come of this mystery grey colour.
