    I am looking for more opinions. I have one but found that some of my eggs are developing.

    If it is cold enough outside to freeze water and I am finding eggs on the floor/ground, usually the geese eggs are covered, can I have a good hatch rate?

    Test and let us know :D

    I don't know, sorry, but I found conditions that were enough to cover the lawns in frost didn't kill eggs from chooks, so I'd think there's a chance.

    Best wishes.

    I will. I found green eggs out there and don't know where they came from. My hens usually lay blue to bluegreen, tan, a light brown and a blush color. I have no new hens, just young ones from that hatched from my hens earlier last year. I was very surprised to see green eggs and put them in the incubator but they were VERY cold and they have been in the incubator for 13 days now and there is some development in some of them. The eggs are too big for my guineas to have laid them and too small for my ducks or geese. I am excited to see what comes out of them.
