    Is mom on the nest or are they just in the yard? You can try to hatch them but i wouldnt get my hopes up. Ive known people to hatch eggs after refridgerating but.... Its a 50 / 50 chance.

    They will probably freeze. One of my birds laid eggs under the coop a few weeks back & they froze, It has only been in the low 30's here.
