    Hello everyone,

    I recently purchased half a dozen Mille Fleur cochin eggs which were shipped to me. It took 10 days for me to receive the eggs. The seller suggested trying to incubate the eggs despite them being around 12 days old. This seems kind of a stretch for me, but I wanted to get your opinions. Should I give them a chance?

    Why not?? It aint like your losing more if they don't hatch...I am curious enough that I would if it were me.

    I would give them a chance, you never know some eggs might hatch it would be better than throwing away the eggs without giving them a chance. [​IMG]
