    My little cream legbar has been laying her eggs in a sneaky little place under the house. Temperatures have dropped to about -2.5 C since she has started laying. My question is; can I put them in the incubator or are the destined to be eating eggs. Thanks

    While the thermometer outside reads -2.5 C it might well be higher than that under the house. I'd put them in the incubator and trust to luck.

    Terrific! I was pretty sure the eggs would be fine. How many chicks?

    Most of them hatched! I got 6 babies[​IMG] I don't remember the exact number of eggs to begin with but I was pretty pleased
