Depends on how cold they got. Toward the end of incubation chicks can generate some heat on their own. If they didn't get to cold they will probably be OK.

I've been searching the forum for a similar question.... my duck eggs appear to be fertile, but my ducks are sitting on the eggs. How long after they are laid do I have to get them into an incubator. I just determined the fertility this morning and have two eggs that are cold to the touch (I presume they were laid last night and then left unattended since the morning)

I have found answers to my questions :)
