Eggs in the fridge since yesterday. Can they go under a broody hen?

    I think one of my hens is finally broody! My husband put 9 eggs in the fridge yesterday. Are they still hatchable? I've laid them out and thought I would try putting them under her.

    It can't hurt to try. I have a bunch in my bator now on day 15 that were in the fridge for longer than 1 day and they are doing fine so far. Good luck!

    its worth a try. We got 7 chicks out of a dozen fertile grocery store eggs, and they had been in the store fridge longer than that.
