Have you decided not to eat it afterall ? A fertile egg is good to set for around 7 days- from 10 days on the viability of the egg to hatch starts decreasing. While you do hear of eggs still hatching- even after being in the fridge as well - fresh eggs are always better to set.
They are best kept in a cool but not cold environment and turned every day until they are set as well.
