    Does any one know the weight fertile chicken eggs should be each day of incubation?

    There's no specific weight each egg is supposed to be at any given day during incubation. However, you want them to lose 13 to 15 percent of their weight over the course of incubation. You can weigh them each week to make sure they're on track.
