I lost all my chickens on friday. I took the 3 eggs that they laid that day and the other 20 out of the fridge and put them in the bator today. I let them set on the counter big end up for 24 hours first. I know its along shot for them after being in the fridge but i have to try. I keep my pheasant eggs in the fridge for 10 days before i put them in the bator and they all developed. We'll see what happens.
