Can you hatch a goose egg that has been in the fridge?

post #1 of 3

My Neighbor gave me a couple of Emden goose eggs about two days ago and I put them in the fridge as soon as I got them and it dawned on me today that it might be cool to try and hatch the two eggs. I'm not sure though if they will even hatch after having been in the fridge. I have them sitting on the counter warming up to room temp right now. I'm not positive that they are fertile, but she has about 10+ geese, so I would assume that there is at least one male. Assuming that they are fertile, could they hatch?

Maybe is probably the best answer you'll get.  There have been several people who have had success hatching fertile chicken eggs sold at Trader Joe's.

Okay. I'll give it a go and hope for the best. Could a broody chicken hatch a goose egg?
