    Is it possible to hatch eggs without an incubator? I bought some hens from a lady with roosters and she informed me that the eggs would remain "fertile" for a month or so. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you !

    I've tried hatching with a heat lamp, but it didn't work for me (I don't know if the eggs were even fertile).
    Others have had success though at it though. Eggs should remain fertile for a few weeks, but the longer they sit the less likely they'll hatch.
