    I was making breakfast and noticed my store bought eggs were fertilized (nothing fancy) so now 6 of them are coming up to room temp so they can go in the bator [​IMG] . It's running anyway.....

    I'm definitely not an expert. But aren't the eggs we buy in the store about 3 weeks old by the time we are able to buy them? Wouldn't that render them unhatchable in that sense?

    well, the worst thing that could possibly happen is that she loses 6 eggs. It sure doesn't hurt to try, you never know. Nature may find a way!

    The worst that can happen is she'll end up with a 3 legged chick like the last person who incubated store bought eggs on here did.
