RE: If you bought an egg at a grocery store and incubated it would you grow a chicken?
Not entirely true. People have successfully done this with free range eggs. Some brands will have none that are viable, but some brands will have a small percentage still viable even after all that refrigeration.

Keep in mind how eggs are hatched: first the chicken lays one per day and does not sit on them, so they are at ambient temperature. Only after a full clutch has been laid does she go broody and incubate them. So they are designed to survive a week or so at temperatures.
