    I had a broody hen sitting on a dozen eggs for the past 2 weeks. Today I go out to check on her, and she's abandoned it. The eggs aren't even remotely warm, so I know it's been a while since shes been there. Is there any hope for the eggs? I'm guessing not.

    I would attempt to incubate them unless your temps got down in to the real low numbers. Usually lower temps slow the hatch down.
