    I RECIEVED HATCHING EGGS YESTERDAY 3/16/12 IN THE MAIL. MY CONCERN IS I JUST PICKED THEM UP 2;00 TODAY. THE TEMPERURE WAS 32 DEGREES HOWEVER THEY WERE IN THE BOX WITH BUBBLE WRAP. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT IF ANY SUCCESS THAT THEY WILL SURVIVE? I MARKED THEM AND PUT INTO INCUBATOR. ANY IDEAS AS TO FORGET IT OR TRY TO HATCH? THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINIONS AND TIME. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS.

    They will probably be okay.
    Especially since eggs stored in the refrigerator will still hatch.
    Don't throw them out; give 'em a chance.
    Good luck!

    You're welcome!

    What breed(s) of chicks are you hatching?

    I believe eggs freeze at 28 degrees so they'll be fine.
