    I wouldn't think so. First of all, they are probably not fertile. And even if they are, I don't think refrigeration does the embryos any good.

    No, tested the link. I have never hatched any eggs. If you read the entire string. Many eggs in the store are fertile and you just don't know it. A few different people tried it and commented on this post. The key to hatching them was getting the with in 4 days of being hatched.
