In the Brooder
- Sep 5, 2021
I have a six month old Steele Egger who’s been brooding for four days now. When my son closed down the coop last night, he accidentally closed a door between the run and the coop (we usually leave it open). Broody mom was on her eggs all night, but sometime this morning she flew into the run to get food/water then couldn’t get back into the coop. I’m not sure how long she was down there, probably an hour at most, but possibly much less. Her eggs were still warm to the touch. When I put her back in the coop, she settled down again right away. If 4 day old eggs are still warm to the touch, any chance they might still be ok? (I plan to candle them at day 7).
