    Today my little sister got handed a fertilized egg from a friend at school. So her and I have been "googleing" what to do with it; and have found nothing. Please help!

    Incubate it! Then see what happens! [​IMG]It would be a great experience for her, depending how old she is

    You can try a heating pad. temp needs to be 98 - 100 degrees though and you need about 35 -45 % humidity.
    might be more trouble than it's worth.

    Find your counties University Extension office. Often they have incubators you can borrow.
