    i have 18 eggs that i was going to put in the incubator this afternoon. but my mother put them in the refrigerator when she mistaked them for regular eggs. they were in the refrigerator from 9:00 this morning to 9:00 at night. would it be possible to still hatch these eggs??

    Absolutely!!!! Just let them set out and come up to room temp before you put them in the incubator. Eggs are extremely forgiving to temp prior to incubation. Just as long as they do not freeze or get too hot..

    Sure, go for it. Alot of people keep their hatching eggs in the bottom of the fridge----as long as they did not freeze---I would give them a try.
