    At the store I bought Chino Valley Ranchers organic eggs and they were free-ranged. The place these eggs come from also sell fertile eggs too and they were free ranged also so I assumed that there would be some roos around for the oganic eggs too. I read somewhere that somebody said about the organic eggs that they have found dead baby chicks in them sometimes so I took this as a sign that maybe the eggs were probably fertile. There is currently only 1 egg in the incubator because it seemed like it was the only egg that seemed hatchable enough and my mom would have been mad if i wasted the whole carton of eggs on attempting to hatch them when they might not even hatch.

    i was planning on doing that but i was thinking that what if that was the only fertile egg out off all of the eggs then i would have ruined my chances so i didnt attempt it
