Fertile Eggs BEFORE incubating

    I searched the forum but couldn't find anything - I received some fertile hatching eggs on Sunday, left it on my kitchen counter to incubate the following day.

    When I came downstairs the following day, my house was an icebox!! I checked the temperature of the fertile eggs and they were around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Are those eggs still viable? Can they still be incubated? OK well I set them in the incubator anyway but do any of you think they might hatch still? Or should I get new fertile eggs?

    They should be fine.
