Will my eggs hatch in this 30 degree weather??
I don't know. We need more information. Are they in an incubator or do you mean they are being laid when the temperature is 30F? Is it 30 in the nest or outside?
How long are they exposed to the lowest temperature?
Not incubatin. I'm letting my hens lay and hatch. It's in the 30s during night time. Just curious to as if there gonna be able to hatch
It's 30s outside at night in there coop maybe mid 30s threw the night. Just curious to if there gonna be able to hatch
If they are laying, they aren't brooding. If they aren't brooding, there will be no hatching. Eggs must be incubated to hatch, either by a broody hen or in an incubator.
She does sit on her eggs tho? She is a game hen also
Broody hens stop laying. It's how nature ensures that all the eggs hatch within a few days of each other. A broody hen will sit on the nest all day and all night, only getting up once or twice a day to eat, drink, and poo.
If she's still laying eggs, she isn't full on broody yet.
There is no guaranteeing a broody, especially in winter.
As said, if she isn't sitting for 23+ hours a day, she isn't broody.
Remove the eggs.
So best to incubate?
If you want chicks on a schedule, incubate.
