    Can I incubate and hatch a fertle egg after sitting in the fridge? Thanks.

    Yes as long as they have been in the fridge less then 2 weeks. There is a trick though, let them sit on the counter until they are room temp so they don't sweat and loose moisture before you put them in the incubator. I did this with a broody and had a 100% hatch rate on fertile eggs.
