    You know those people who attach their kids to them almost 24/7 when they are born?

    Can you hatch an egg by attaching it to your own body to keep it warm/moist?

    I know it might be a problem when sleeping, but if you could make a sling with a stout cover....

    maybe 98.7 isn't warm enough?

    is this ridiculous? [​IMG]

    No, I doubt that it's possible...For one thing that's not warm enough. Another is I don't think all the jarring around would do the egg any good.

    There is something in the archives where 1 person did hatch one egg. I think in her bra.

    There was also a contest in the news and a man hatched one in his nether regions with a pocket.

    Generally the human body doesn't generate enough heat to incubate the embryo properly.
