    I was reading a thread about shell-less eggs, and then I began to wonder if anyone has ever hatched a chick from a shell-less egg?
    Unrelated to this, I was also reading about people hatching chicks from store bought eggs. Has anyone ever done that?

    I've hatched refrigerated eggs several times, but they weren't bought from the store. There are a couple of threads in this section dedicated to store bought eggs.
    Go on Youtube and search for hatching a chick in a dish, no shell, just in a bowl with I think plastic wrap covering the top. Cool stuff.
