Are they hatchable if they pass the float test?

    We just found a pile of eggs that our Welsummer hid. I was going to put a batch of eggs into the incubator and would really love to include hers; however, I don't want to waste the space if they aren't going to be viable.

    I did the float test and only about half passed it. Of course, they were the ones on the top of the pile. :)

    They should be good. Choose the cleanest, freshest, best shaped eggs you can and you should get some adorable little chicks in three weeks.

    Best of luck!
