Dead eggs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, our hen laid 1 chick a few days ago and left the nest. A family member took the rest of her fertile eggs inside by accident when she was away from nest! They were left at room temperature ( 10 - 15 celcius ) for 3 days but now I have them under a light bulb. They eggs were about 2-3 days from hatching before they were brought inside but I think they could be dead from the lower temperature, is this the case?

They need high humidity to hatch otherwise they wont hatch.  if you have a rubbermaid tote you can cut a hole in the side put a dish of water in it, put a lamp sticking in the hole (25 watt).  it makes an emergency incubator.  This way the humidity gets up a bit and it holds the temperature better.
Getting cool shouldn't hurt the eggs much it may delay them though.  Good luck!

Let em warm up for 24 hours then candle. Late stage abandonment can be fatal but often isn't. If you don't try, you won't know. Impossible is for nature/God to decide. Kept warm for 24/36 hours, they will either show life or prove to be dead. If you don't try, failureis certain.
