This morning I went to check on my chickens and found 3 eggs in their little sleeping area. My Isa Browns are 16 weeks old. I wish I knew which ones were laying because theyre all around the same age maybe only days apart. I live in Michigan and winters here are very cold from 10-30 degrees it varies. Question is: If I wanted to not eat these eggs and let them try to hatch them, do you think its safe being its so cold outside? Should I monitor if the hens are sitting on them. Because if theyre not I can just bring them inside to eat. Also I know these eggs arent fertilized but I was reading about the difference between fertilized and in fertilized. Can you eat them either way? Does the egg have to be fertilized to grow a chick inside? Please point me in the right direction so I can read more about this. I have only found a few links but they havent answered my questions. I am new at this and this is their first winter thanks!
