    I'd either cover or remove them that maybe a might cold but then again I think they can be kept at above freezing temps for a while. That's a hard one.

    Does she sit on the nest at night? Do you want her to hatch them? Eggs won't freeze unless it gets below 32 in the nest, so if she is sitting on them at night, or if it isn't going to get below freezing yet, you're ok. if not, and you want to save them, bring in all but 2 or 3, and then when she does get serious, give the rest back. To maintain fertility, store between 60 & 70 degrees F and turn once a day.
