Has anyone made a note of the oldest egg that they ever incubated to a chick? Id be interested in knowing.

If they are kept cool, up to ten days is the ideal. From there you will start to lose out on hatchability.

I have done eggs that are 20 - 22 days old and got a 30% hatch.

So from what both of you said, with 3-4 week old eggs you can still get 20-30% hatch. Interesting.
