    I put 36 eggs in the incubator with my last hatch, over half of those were really porous, 10 were non fertile and got tossed on 7 day candling, out of the rest I got 21 chicks, 1 hatched and died :( and 3 eggs seemed to just quit developing around week 2. So long story short, they most def have a chance at hatching ;)
