    Hello Guys!!!! Few days ago my hen become unexpected broody, unfortunately all eggs were in freezer. I do not have any other option to put those eggs under broody hen so I kept out all eggs from freezer for few hours. After equivalent with the atmosphere temperature, I placed eggs under broody hen. My confusion is that " such eggs can hatch or not"? Please..... help.....:(

    I'm not sure if I'm a little confused here but do you mean the actual feeezer where they would have frozen solid as in ice or do you mean the refrigerator where they would have just been kept cold?

    No they were not sold frozen but cold because the fridge's temperature was above zero degree.

    Yes. I have hatched eggs I bought from a neighbor that were washed and refrigerated. I didn't have a great hatch rate, but I got 7 good healthy hens that are 7 months old now :)
