Its according to the air temp, location of the eggs, etc. During the middle of a 95 degree day with the nest in the coop which is out in the sun----maybe a few hours off would not be a problem but as far as "Die" maybe the next morning if the nights got cool, if the coop is in the shade of tree's--still 95---off maybe a couple hours is no problem. If its 32 degree's and the hen gets off the eggs---she better get back in a few minutes----you see what I am saying----so much has to be considered. Even at 32 degree's the eggs would not die in 10 to 15 minutes.Hi,
I was wondering how long can a hen be off her eggs before the eggs die. I thought the hen can be off them for 10 minuets max.... but I could be wrong. Can you please help!
