    My friend gave me some fertilized eggs from her chickens. I put them under one of my broody girls and during the day she moved to another box on some unfertilized eggs! When I got home, the fertilized eggs were cold. I put them back under her.....what are their chances? THe outside temp was about 55 degrees and I estimate they were uncovered about three hours. Do they stand a chance? HELP!!!![​IMG]

    There's a very good chance that they'll make it. My broody changed nests and left her eggs out all night long. I put them in the 'bator and 6 out of 8 hatched.

    Good luck!
