I have a cochin bantam hen and rooster. I'm hoping to raise some chicks from this pair. The hen has started to lay eggs, but has not gone broody and now the forecast is calling for below freezing temps at night. My question is should I bring the eggs inside at night to keep them from freezing or can I just leave them in the nest? Their coop is just a 3 foot by 3 foot converted dog box. She's been laying for about a month, about an egg every other day. Should I just take the eggs after this cold spell passes and let her lay fresh eggs? We've had laying hens for years, but this is our first attempt at hatching chicks.
