    Here is an issue I've never come across before. I sold some eggs to a local guy last nite. This morning I found my favorite hen had died during the nite, and he has two of her last eggs. IF he is agreeable to swap eggs with me, and IF he did set them in his 'bator last nite, would it be damaging to the the egg to get it back into my 'bator. We're talking about 18 hours, and 10 miles... would love to have thoughts from the more experienced hatchers. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't see how it could be damaging, as long as they are kept warm during transit.

    I'm sorry about your hen.

    No problem as long as they don't get cold.
