    Round 2 of trying to hatch pea chicks.
    My incubator was down so I have 7 eggs laid this week I never placed in incubator yet. Are they still viable?

    If you kept them below 80 degrees, 55-60 is ideal, then they should be fine.

    Depending on environment, eggs will start to degrade after 10'ish days, this does not mean they wont start or that they wont hatch, it starts to lessen your chances that they will go full term.[​IMG]

    With a good light you can see bloodshot at 4-5 days, 7 days no doubt, 10+ days chunk 'em.[​IMG].
