    I'm trying to hatch eggs in an incubator in my classroom. I candled last night after day 10. No sign of life :( I'm going to start a new batch of eggs tomorrow, from different chickens. What should I do with my old eggs?

    Do you have older chickens?

    If there is no sign of life, dispose of them.

    Ok, I would say that you should give those eggs to an older hen going broody. If you do get new eggs and those don't work out either, then I would suggest getting chicks that already hatched.

    Why give non developing eggs to a broody?
