How is it that a person has say a dozen eggs or so and it is obvious that they were layed over a period of days, yet they all hatch out at almost the same time ? Is there a way to keep fertilized eggs in suspended animation until you have enough of them to place in an incubator? When someone is advertising 10 or 12 eggs of a certain chicken type, lets say Silver Laced Wyndotte, are all the eggs from the same chicken and rooster? I told you these were beginners questions, so stop laughing so hard, and educate me. Thanks for your replies.
