Are eggs still viable after they've been sat on for 10 hours?

I have a turkey hen who decided to lay on her nest last night and then got up off of it today. So, the eggs were warm for 10 hours and have now been abandoned. Are they still viable if she tries again and stays, or are they now tomorrow's omelette?

yes they are fine. leave them there. my hen did the same thing. they will do that for several days until they are ready to settle down. my hen is now on it full time and all/most eggs are growing. they will also get up at least once a day to stretch and eat and drink a little bit and go to the bathroom
