    I will have access to an incubator after we get back from vacation on the 26th and would like to put one of Winnie's, whom I believe I just lost to a predator, eggs in to be hatched. They are in the fridge though. Would that be possible if they are in the fride that long?

    It would seem unlikely to me that one egg, held that long, in those conditions would result in a chick.
    Impossible? Maybe not. Likely? Not very.

    There have been threads lately of people hatching store bought eggs, so try it and see. At least your's won't have gone through all the handling/abuse a store bought egg gets.

    Good luck!
