    People with kids or who live with kids have probably all been though this a hen lays an egg and they all say lets hatch it [​IMG]
    Well my cousin got one and is trying to hatch it by using her bindy lamp. She has it in a bowl with the bulb close to it. She turns it 3 times a day and mists it with water. I haven't the heart to tell her it probably won't work or will it???

    Didn't Hatch Go to the last page to see what was inside

    Me too! I remember a long time ago, we went camping and I found a duck egg all by itself. I took it to our camper and tried to hatch it in a sock. Then towards the end of the trip I accidentally cracked it, I didn't want to tell my parents so I dropped it by a rock. [​IMG]

    I guess the question is - Is it fertile? Or could it be?

    That was my question, too Myles [​IMG] There was no mention of where the egg came from... It does look very well cared for!!
