I had a broody hen abandon he nest two days before hatch and I didn’t catch it right away... the egg were stone cold and it was early spring so quite cool outside. I put them in the incubator and a few hours later I could see a little movement once they warmed up and they all hatched (there were 7 I think). Hopefully yours will all be OK too!

I'm glad to hear this comment since power went out on mine earlier than 20 days and none hatched of mine

That early in their development they are still quite susceptible. For how long were they left without the proper temperature and/or what was the temperature in the brooder?
