    Realized my silkie hasn't been on the nest all day, but my other girls have been in the box laying their eggs today, so I don't think they've gone cold. I've moved them to the incubator....do you think they'll have a chance?

    I guess time will tell...

    Yes! I found all four of my welsummer eggs that I put under my broody momma ice cold one evening with her nowhere to be found. This was two weeks into the process. I thought well, what the heck....in the bator they go. Two have hatched this weekend! I dont think that the other two will make it but I almost tossed those cold eggs and Im glad I didn't. Good Luck!
