Yes!! We are proud to present two (so far) chicks from eggs that were refrigerated below 40F for two weeks!! My hen was laying daily in the same spot and I kept taking her eggs inside (to eat, ewwww) and one day she decided to go broody anyway (even though she’s not a broody breed, she’s a Dark Cornish). So, sans-eggs, she was going broody. I knew her eggs couldn’t hatch (unless Mr. Guinea really could fertilize a chicken egg, but we’ll leave that to another experiment…) so I grabbed a few from a carton of eggs from a friend who does have a rooster. I guess it’s been 22 days or so, because here they are!
And DON’T mess with MOMMA!!! (No, really, she’s a sweetie, but doesn’t look that way in this photo. Hehe!
