    So I miss the story about the test egg, and how you came upon it. Can you post the link so I can read back on the details?

    I put an eggland's best egg under my broody today. Maybe I'll have the same luck you are having. Probably not though. What are the chances of a store bought egg being fertile and still surviving the fridge?

    You got a furtile egg from Safeway? That's really weird.

    Quote:Doubt it most of those hens never see a roo in their life also those eggs tend to be at least over a week old when they hit stores.

    Did it say on the carton it was fertile? I thought the egg farms didn't ever bother with having roosters around. Karen

    I see those in our Hannaford, too. I always have to restrain myself.. I'm dying to try incubating and see if I can hatch one.

    One of these days..


    Good luck with your little test egg! Is it white or brown?
