My question is I see all these ads for hatching eggs and what happens if during shipping they get really cold will they still hatch when put in the bator? I know there fertile but will they hatch if they get cold or do they need to stay warm?

I shipped a lot of eggs this winter, even some to Alaska. They seemed to fare well. As long as they dont freeze, and dont stay really cold for long, they seem to be fine.

as long as they don't freeze your OK, eggs i've gottin' shipped to me when it was real cold seem to be hatching better than the eggs I'm getting now.
but shipped eggs are always a gamble
