    I put some in that were in the fridge for 3 days and there growing fine, it would be fine to put them in the bator, its just the longer u leave them in the fridge the more the fertility in them goes down

    I am starting my first eggs ever in an incubator tonight, but I have read that after 4 days you should be able to candle and see growth. I personally would candle them before you put them in the bator and candle again in about 4-5 days and look at the differance. But I could be wrong, this is just my opinion

    Are they chicken eggs? By 5 days, you will see development... Usually... Depending on the shell color..

    I use egg which 10 days old or more, and putting eggs in refriegrtator, best thing is to turn eggs frequently.
