    Tommorow we are putting in ee eggs and some silkie eggs. we have to get the bator's temp regulated tonight.
    One question....we got 3 eggs today and put them in the fridge. then we got around 9 more, so we decided that we would try to hatch them.
    Will the 3 eggs in the fridge hatch???? The eggs outside felt the same as the eggs in the fridge.

    Yup, Yup, Yup! This summer i put a dozen eggs in the fridge for 24 hours then let them warm to room temperature. I put them in the bator and had a sessfull hatch. and i had a Buff orpington go broody, and i want to put a mix egg under her, so i just got one out of the fridge, and she hatched. She is now my favorite! Dont tell the others!
