My hen pushed all the eggs out of the nest last night and they were cold, when I turned the light on she started pulling them back under her is there any chance that they will live 2 were slightly warm. And why now? she has not got off the nest for up to 4 and 5 days at a time she is in the house so we watch her real close.

I really can't say if they are okay but, it never hurts to try. I would let her sit on them again or put them in an incubator. If they didn't get too cold maybe they will hatch.
Good luck!!
