Hello and this is my first post. If it has been answered elsewhere, then please direct me. My Easter Egger hen just started laying eggs. Thus far she has laid three. Whereas the roosters have free reign of her, I am going to assume that she is fertile. If not, then it ain't for lack of them trying! At night it has been dropping below freezing. She is laying inside the coop, but I know it's freezing in there because the water is frozen in the morning. My hope is for her to lay a clutch of eggs and then sit on them and make more chickens. My question is though, are those eggs still "alive" after being left out in that temperature? Should I just go ahead and eat them and wait till spring, or should I just get a little incubator? Any help or insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
