    Has anyone tried hatching them successfully. I've also heard that Trader Joe's (whole foods) carry fertile eggs. can they be hatched as well?

    It seems that the anecdotal evidence on this site would suggest that the fertile eggs at Trader Joes have decent fertilty or I should say hatchability. It seems like the fertile eggs at Whole Foods do not hatch as well.

    If the eggs at Costco though Organic etc. will not likely be fertile unless it is stated on the carton.

    I know this is an old post but I did a quick search and found it. I noticed that my most recent purchase of eggs from Costco (organic, free range) looked different than normal. Usually they are just the normal light brown eggs, all the same size and color but this time there were varying colors and sizes. I decided to inspect one and it definitely looked like it was fertile to me. They weren't labeled any differently than they usually are, didn't say fertile or anything, I'm guessing they just got them from a different supplier.
