A couple of incubating questions...

After a tragic event in my yard a little while ago, I've decided in my Rooster, Gandalf's honor, I'm going to hatch some of the eggs. A nearby BYC friend ( Thank you Opa) is going to let me borrow an incubator, and hopefully my first attempt at this doesn't go too wrong.

I haven't done this before so I have a couple of questions....

1) The eggs are fertile, but have been in the fridge. ( the longest is under two weeks) Will they still hatch?

2) How long will the hens eggs be fertile without Gandalf around? A couple weeks? a month?

I'm kind of nervous about hatching eggs.

And to Gandalf......RIP big guy. You were a great Roo. You'll be missed big guy. I'm so sorry.

Aw man... I feel wicked bad now...Gandy was one of my favorites...
Well, hope you feel better mom. I miss him too. D: And good luck hatchin' those eggs!
