About a week ago, the first egg was laid. A few days before that, the main Roo flew off with a Hen & another Roo & they have been MIA ever since. I was able to catch the second Roo a week ago, maybe a day after the first egg was laid. I found it rolled out of the nest & cold, so I put it in the fridge. The next day, or maybe the second day, there was a new egg in a different nest. I left it be. Over the next few days to last night, 3 more eggs were laid in the same nest. They are cool to the touch & I rarely see a hen on them. What I want to know is the following; Can any of these eggs still be eaten even after several days out in the coop? Is it normal for a hen to lay an egg & 'ignore' the nest until it's time to lay another egg? Any chance these are viable eggs & may hatch? Is it possible for the eggs to be in 'stand by' until the hen decided she has enough eggs & sits on them? Is 'stand by' even possible/how does this part work? I have no idea how this stuff works, so any & all help/info would be great!
