I would like to hatch someI would like to hatch some eggs from my hens. I was told to gather the (fertilized) eggs a couple of times per day, bringing them inside and keeping them at room temperature until I have the amount I want to hatch. Also told that the fertilized eggs will remain viable for 10 days or so as long as they don't get real cold, such as refrigeration, or staying in the nest for too many hours without a hen. Is this true? How long can they set and a chick still be able to hatch under proper incubator conditions?
