will they still be hatchable after 1 week? 2 weeks? 3 weeks?
as long as an egg is fertile when it is laid, it will always be fertile. Generally, the older the egg, the worse the hatch rate. But I have had broody hens hatch eggs that were as old as one month
Well, a hen will usually lay a clutch of 10 eggs to sit on so they stay fertile for at least that long (10 days). I don't really know after that.
Well here is a wonderful publication from the Mississippi State Univ AG department concerning incubation. It talks about proper storage, and how long you can store.
