My hen is broody and i have no eggs to supply her with at the moment. Here is a pic of her just for fun: well here is my question: If you have a fertile egg and you collect it and put it in the fridge for say around 3 or 4 weeks.....is it still fertile? could i hatch it? The temp of my fridge is always 36 degrees F. i don't know if that makes a difference. These eggs are from silkies and the rooster to hen ratio is 4 roosters to 11 hens...well was that till something got the hens and 1 roo. also i really like well explained answers cause im a curious person and will probably ask 1 billion questions....so thank you in advanced for putting up with my questions!!
