    Immi was just wondering , if I bought hatching eggs now and waited until Christmas Day to put them in the incubator would they still hatch or would they be infertile by that time ? Any feedback is much appreciated !

    You really want eggs to be as fresh as possible when you start to incubate them and generally after about 10 days chicken eggs become much less viable and less likely to hatch. I am sure there are exceptions, but I wouldn't wait a month.
