    Found out where the eggs went... (I have a couple of questions!)

    So, recently, I was finding less and less eggs. I thought my chickens were taking a break from laying... but I was wrong. Yesterday I checked for eggs and.... I found a stash of 24+ (Likely fertile) eggs! (That’s 2-3 days worth of eggs!) That for some reason was out of sight and layed outside...

    How long can incubated eggs survive the cold?

    This morning, the incubator was left open by my brother. 8 hours later, I come home and realize what happened. The eggs were about ~5 days along, could they have survived? They’re in our kitchen so the temperature was about 65-70 degrees.

    Cold eggs

    Hello! I have a hen that has been sitting and was due a week from today. I came home from work to discover her off her nest and her eggs cold. How long can eggs go cold this far into developing? I'm hoping they can be salvaged. :hit

    Heated nesting boxes help stop frozen eggs!

    Last winter was unusually cold for my area, with days turning to weeks of temperatures way below freezing. My schedule allowed me to gather my eggs twice a day, 8am and 8pm. For weeks I had cracked frozen eggs. Literally dozens of eggs were deemed unfit for human consumption, and fed back the...
