    I have 2 broody hens which are in the same coop sitting on eggs but when i checked them this morning both hens were in the same nest box with a clutch eggs left sitting which were cold. I have now put them into the same nest box. Will the eggs hatch or will i need to get more. At the most they have had no mother sittin on them for 8 hours. My hens have only been sitting on them for 48 hours.

    Please help as im new to all this .

    As long as the night temps haven't gone too far down (50's or above) I think the eggs are ok. just put them back under the girls.
