    I tried to give them to my broody, but she got off and another wanted to eat them , long story short I can get a incubator but want to know how to go about using the eggs I put in the fridge? Is it even possible now to use them? Can someone redirect me to a page that explains this , thank you so much

    I used some out of my fridge last year that were about a week old and about half of them hatched. [​IMG]

    So long as they did not freeze you can incubate refrigerated eggs. Nearly all of mine are kept in the fridge before I set them. Just let them come up to room temperature before putting them in the box so that condensation won't form on them.

    I'm sad, I washed them as they had poop on them and egg so I ran them through warm water. Duh will I ever learn. I will have to go find more fertile eggs. Ugh thanks mucH
