    I put every egg I had from them in there and the eggs were as old as 15 days old. No chilling or keeping turned since I was not planning on hatching. I just candled 14 good out of 14 bantam cochin. Just crossing my fingers they continue to do well and hatch.

    Good luck. I've pulled eggs out of the fridge and had guinea eggs sitting on the counter for a month and got a 50% hatch rate from both.

    I was surprised they made it this far. If they hatch I will be beside myself with joy. Losing the mom and dad was terrible but at least I might get babies
