I have a special spot to put my nest away from the general population. It's almost like a porch to the coop. I keep my bedding and feed in there.
One day I was feeding and I left the door open between the two rooms. I didn't notice that Mumma had left the nest and entered the coop.
When I was finished feeding, I closed the door and left for the day. It was at least 8 hours before I noticed she wasn't on the nest.
She had been on the eggs for around 12 day's. The temperature in the nest was around 4 Celsius that day. ( we got snow and it was unusually cold).
The eggs should be set to hatch next Tuesday, April 12th.
Do you think they would have survived after being left alone for that long?
