    My son hatched eggs 3 years ago for his science fair project. We used refrigerated versus non refrigerated eggs as our test and the hypothesis was that the refrigerated eggs would have a lower hatch rate. My daughter wants to use hatching chicken eggs for her project this year but we need a different hypothesis so she's not just copying her brother's project. I figured all of the great chicken minds here would be able to help. Who has some ideas? It must have a testable hypothesis and follow the scientific method.

    Can you get sex-linked hatching eggs?

    Maybe turning them versus not turning them?

    Hatching in cartons versus laying flat?

    Can you get tiny pullet eggs where the pullet has just started laying versus regular-sized eggs?
