    My hen has been laying fertile eggs for a while, and i have just been putting them in the fridge, but i am wondering something. If she hatches them, will Murdoch's or Tractor Supply take the chicks i get? Or is it too late in the year for them? [​IMG]

    I'm not sure how long you mean by " for a while", but if I remember right, eggs that have been refrigerated for any length if time aren't likely to hatch. The tractor supply places around here get their chicks from big hatcheries and quit selling them by mid- June. You probably need to check with those places and see if they would take your chicks. I'm glad you're trying to find an outlet for them before you decide to try to hatch any so you don't end up with chickens you don't want or know what to do with.
