A friend of mine was moving out of state and couldnt take her chickens with her ( she had 100 in all) She found homes for all of them but three Austrolorp hens that were all sitting on eggs, she asked if I would take them since I already had some Austrolorps, after much thought and discussion with my DH I agreed, DH spent two days last week building them a seperate pen. They arrived at my house yesterday( Sunday 8/22/10) about 11:30 a.m. We got them situated in their new pen with their eggs BTW they each came with 11 eggs so 33 in all. They were sitting on their own Austrolorp eggs plus some Rhode Island Red eggs from a hen that decided she didnt want to sit anymore. Since arriving at my home yesterday morning I havent seen them sit on the eggs one time. I went home over my lunch hour and eggs are cool, the eggs range from 18 days fertile to 7 days. I don't usually hatch out eggs so I dont have an incubator, what can I do. I called my friend and she said don't worry about it because people ship eggs in the mail for 3-4 days and the chicks are fine so if they dont sit right away they will still be ok?????? This doesnt seem right to me. Are my eggs ok? Is it too late to do anything at this point? What can I do? I certainly can't keep 33 eggs in my bra.......I hate for them all to die especially since some of them are so close to hatching..... HELP, someone, anyone BTW we are in Georgia and the temp is about 96 degrees during the day and about 80ish at night, if that makes a difference Thanks in advance.
