    Hey I went to Whole foods today and I saw heritage Black Maran eggs and Americauna eggs next to all the others.
    Has anyone ever been able to hatch these? or even tryed?
    Are they fertile?

    You would have to crack one open and look for the bulls-eye. I have read some posts that someone had hatched fertile eggs they got from Trader Joe's.

    From another thread.

    I tried Whole Foods fertile eggs in my hatch last spring/ Nothing developed. I did not try to crack open any to check for fertility. That sounds like a good idea. Also I had some local eggs and some e-bay eggs in the same incubator that hatched well, so I know that my technique was not the problem.
