    Yep, I've hatched probably 4 chicks that came from eggs I had in the fridge for a week. They were last min. additions to fill up my bator. It's possible.

    sure can.. people hatch refrigerated eggs all the time.. just keep in mind that the longer they are in the fridge the more fertility will drop

    oh,.. i forgot to mention.,. a biggie with refrigerated eggs.. let them come to room temperature for a day before setting in the incubator... putting them from the fridge right into the incubator will cause condensation which is one of the main causes of rotten eggs!
