    I don't know why that posted twice so I'm editing this now. It's worth a try, so close!

    Read about someone doing this with duck eggs and still had 75% hatch, it's worth a try.

    I hope so! So close to hatch date it's worth a try! Assuming hens sleeping right now, can you sneak them back under her?

    I would also like to know. I had a hen sitting on eggs and then she got mixed up and didn't sit on the eggs for 3 or 4 days. They only had occasionally a hen sitting while laying an egg. 4 of the five hatched but it was a delayed hatch. The last one hatched a week after the expected date.
