I hope there is someone out there that can give me a bit of advise. I have a broody hen that has been that way for about 3 or 4 days. she has hatched a clutch once before. I slid a few fertile eggs under her where she sat on them for about 24 to 36 hours. Unfortunately when I got home from work today she was on a different nest of unfertile eggs. Her eggs were now ice cold. The temps here in NC were holding today at 42 degrees. I am sure the interior temp was only a couple of degrees warmer. My question is. If she only sat on these eggs for such a short time, would the eggs even have started developing at this point? if so would they survive the cold spell they have experienced already? Also, do you think I should separate her so she can't get tempted away from her nest for other eggs. Lastly does anyone think I should scrap these eggs ASAP and just start over or, let her sit for this week, and candle at day seven. This worries me because she will be sitting for an extra total week. What do you guys think I should do? Thanks for any advice you may be able to give me.
