    Hi y'all,

    I'm writing a story for an online magazine on hatching store bought eggs. Would anyone who has hatched them before possibly want to answer some questions?

    Also do any of you have pictures you'd like to share with me about the process? I'd love to talk to you guys!

    Let me know. I'm super interested in how well you can actually hatch supermarket eggs.

    Hi, you can't really interview me, since 9 of mine only made it to day 9. I used rock Island brand. I wanted to see if I could hatch them. perhaps they would have been fine had I used a broody hen. They didn't have loose air cells though which was good.

    I did hatch a egg that was in my fridge a couple of days. I had a super rooster but 2 other roosters got jealous and took him out. I went to the fridge and pulled 3 eggs that I had hoped he had fathered. all 3 hatched but only one was his. Below is her pic. her name is Baby Gaga.
    she is silky and bantam americauna.
