EIGRP won't redistribute a default from another protocol. You'll either
need to set a static default (then redistribute static will do its
thing) or the better option is to add a default summary to your Layer 3
interfaces from which you want the default advertised:

Interface X
 ip summary-address eigrp <AS> 250

The 250 on the end is the administrative distance the route will have on
the local router - this will prevent it overriding the default from
another dynamic routing protocol.
