My peahen sat on her eggs for 3 nights. Last night she abandoned the nest and flew up in the trees to sleep with her peacock boyfriends (bad mommy) the eggs were outside in 50 degree weather with a very slight drizzle.

My question is, is it worth it for me to go buy an incubator? Or ar the eggs duds now?

Thanks in advance.

Yes well, (I hate to admit this) I don't have an incubator, so there's no sense in me purchasing one if the eggs won't hatch.

update

I bought an incubator and the eggs are hatching so they eggs were viable!
Just waiting for a few more to hatch.

Picture from last night.

I have a chick hatching today from an egg I found in the 30's, almost frozen. So yeah cold doesn't necessarily kill them...
