My mother is 86 and she's planning a visit the 15th - the 21 to see our little farmette - a 2000 mile trip! In the 40's, she had a farm, but my parents had to give it up. She truly loved that chapter of her life, so my plan was to put a couple of eggs in the bator so they could hopefully hatch while she was here - or she could atleast candlet them - a trick she never experienced. She was so excited when I told her! I had to time this well, so I secured a couple of fertile chicken eggs on the 30th and planned to get them cooking by the first. Of course, our little bator kicked the bucket. All day, I couldn't get the temp up beyond 90 degrees (it's been hoverin around 86 - 87). Since mom was so excited, I went ahead and bought another - Little Giant to be exact. The eggs in the old bator have been in 80 some degrees for 24 hours. Are they still viable do you believe? Do I have time to pull this off before she leaves on the evening of the 21st? So, now equipped with a bator, I drove around this evening trying to find eggs. The only place I could get last minute eggI found a farm that had 300 hens, and 4 roos. They gave me two more eggs, what are the chances that they'd be fertile? (lucky roos, eh?) Thanks.
