We also just purchased an incubator…could we just throw them in there???

So I just found my chickens hiding spot (though I’m trying to get them to lay in coop…reason I brought them in) what are the chances they’ll lay on them soon?? We also just purchased an incubator…could we just throw them in there??? Though it did rain about 3 days ago are they still good? Or should I just count them as goners??? (Top it off I have a chicken that loves to break them ????????

You should be fine, they only have to be fertile. The temperature of the egg does not matter unless it’s hot enough to incubate(summertime). You can pull farm fresh eggs out of a fridge, let sit a few days on the counter, then incubate and end up with babies. You should be fine.

they could be a little less viable, but I’ve done it before ???? as long as they are not rotten you absolutely can.

I’ve hatched babies from eggs that were in the fridge for a couple days! As long as they haven’t started growing you should be good to put them in an incubator.

Put them in the incubator, floating first so you don’t have unnecessary bad eggs but it looks like a pretty full clutch they’re getting ready to sit if they’re going to sit. So leave a couple of eggs in each nest for the mommas if you want them to be b r o o d y

I didn’t see this question so I’ll ask. Did you separate the brown from the white or do they do that?
