    i mistakenly refridgerated a day 5 broody egg. it was in fridge almost 24 hours. does it have a chance in H E double toothpicks?

    i might put it back under her just for the halibut. i feel so BAD!

    It MIGHT hatch. But I doubt it, sorry!

    update: inconclusive. this hatch went badly due to problems with the broody and I only got two chicks and neither from this egg. however it was impossible to tell whether the fridge incident was its downfall or something else.
