Thats my question I have some in there that are about 2 weeks old. Are they good to hatch?
Well that's over 14 days... They are always fertile, but their viability goes downhill quickly after 10 days.
I once found a broody hen hiding under some bushes in the midle of a small shopping center Garden. she had 15 babys about 1 or 2 days old
I grabbed them and took them home
im pretty sure all this eggs were her own eggs
so that means 14 to 15 days they still good
Ok thanks. I think ill just make a trade with my uncle hes got fertile eggs
After 14 days is when hatch-ability falls off fast with unrefrigerated eggs. But eggs in the fridge are different. They take a big hit for being in the fridge(30%) but drop off much slower after that. Fridge eggs can be hatched at well over a month. Dont expect a high hatch rate but they do hatch.
