today when i went to collect eggs for the incubator (first run). the only eggs had a hen on them. she was not broody, just sitting on them. but the eggs were warm. they cooled down before i get them in to the incubator. will this be a problem?

Along as they went left cool for more than a week. After a week the egg mortality rates begin to rise. Its best to get them in the incubator before a week. However that short of time is fine and they all should be fine.
