Help! Found her nest in the cold

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My little cream legbar has been laying her eggs in a sneaky little place under the house. Temperatures have dropped to about -2.5 C since she has started laying. My question is; can I put them in the incubator or are the destined to be eating eggs. Thanks

While the thermometer outside reads -2.5 C it might well be higher than that under the house. I'd put them in the incubator and trust to luck.

Terrific! I was pretty sure the eggs would be fine.  How many chicks?
