Several weeks ago, I had a Silkie that hatched in April go broody and was siting on one of her eggs. Two weeks prior to that I re-homed a Polish and two Silkie roosters. So we did one of those "aww what the hell" things. I pulled 6 of my oldest eggs that had been in the refrigerator for a week and put those in the nest. Today we got quite the surprise. Four have now hatched! I think we will name these, Freezer Burn, Ice Cube, Popsicle, and ConeHead.
