Has anyone tried hatching "Vital Farms" Eggs before?

Noticed some "pasture raised, humane certified" eggs by "Vital Farms, Alfresco" in the grocery section. They are a BEAUTIFUL dark chocolaty brown. Has anyone tried hatching them before??? How did it go?

Unless it specifies that they are fertilized, they probably are not. The added cost of supporting the roos would certainly be noted. There are pics on this site to help you determine if an egg was fertile after you crack it open.

Yes, i suppose I could crack a few, it's just that, although always Brown, I've never seen them chocolaty and didn't want to break any! I know people have had success at whole foods (unmarked I believe) and trader Joe's (marked fertile) so I thought I would give it a chance.

Marans were likely responsible for those lovely chocolate eggs.

I'd pop a few in the 'bator, it couldn't hurt. Worst case scenario, they're not fertile and you can feed them to your chickens :)
