    Yesterday I bought A dozen eggs at a church shooting match. I stuck them in the incubator just to see if anything hatches. I don't even know if they were fertile but they were only a dollar and my incubator was half empty, it was a donation if nothing else. Where would you put my chances of having a hatch of any kind out if this?

    You can check to see if they are fertile by candling them. To llearn how to do that look it up online.

    thing about candeling is you have to wait a few days.. lol.. i HATE waiting... lol...

    do you know if the person selling the eggs even has a rooster??
    that would have been the easiest way to know.. if there's no roo, there's no babies... if there is a roo you've got 50/50 chance// lol.. maybe??
    i'm saying 50/50 because there's 2 answers.. lol... yes/no fertile/not fertile .... i don't know... ignore me... lol..
