    Hello, I'm brand new to this site, which I happened to find when I Googled about whether a cooled (hen left her eggs for her sister's eggs) fertile egg will still hatch. I found reassuring responses here, that give hope that the eggs will likely hatch.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Many eggs can become chilled and still hatch. One time I had the power go out for 8+ hours on my incubator and still had (if I remember correctly) a 70-80% hatch.
