Frozen eggs hatching

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

My eggs have been frozen when I collect them from my girls.  I wondered if they would hatch after being frozen, and then thawed. I know they were frozen especially with temps of -25 to -30 below.  So far I have 6 little fuzzy butts from them.  All seem to be fine, and running around in the brooder.

peace is when I am round my chickens, because they don't talk back, just cluck      help the chickens take over the world, and vote foghorn leghorn for presdent

They did hatch, they are hatching now.  I set them in my incubator on the 16th, and today they started hatching so far I have 6 little fuzzy butts.

That is very good to know... I've had some that I marked as "cold"... they weren't cracked, but they were VERY cold when I collected them.  Some of them are developing, too! clap

I just wanted to know if it would work, and it did.   Now I am going to put my EE eggs in.  After they thaw.  big_smile

That is very cool!  Here I have been tossing mine because I didn't think they would even have a chance!

Have had chickens for a whole six years now!  This year decided to try out ducks too!  WOW messy they are, but totally worth it, their cuteness overpowers all the messes they can make :D  Check them out at:  autumnbreezechickens.blogspot.com

Don't folks freeze eggs to eat later?
