    Go ahead and try.

    Some may say though to wait a month or two until the eggs are a bit larger. Larger eggs mean more food for the growing baby, and older birds are more developed, thus a greater chance of healthy lively chicks.

    put them in the bator. go for it. why not? incubating has so many do's and dont's and of course you have no control over mother nature anyway, so just do it . i just wouldn't incubate any over 10 days. good luck.
