    Hi people,

    If you buy fertile hatching eggs, and you live in the Great White North, will they still be fertile when they reach you?

    Quote:I live in the Great White North and I think IMO, it all depends on how they ship them and how long they are in the cold.

    I know I've read people put their eggs in the freg. and they still hatch them.

    Where are they coming from?

    Depends on how they are packed, shipped, and where they stop & have to wait.
