    Hi, just wondering the max amount of time an egg can be accidentally left out by mumma hen before it is no longer viable? Once incubation has stayed that is! Thanks

    Sorry, once incubation has started that was mean't to say! Placed 15 eggs under my broody last night. Trying to also work out if this is going to be toi many for her. No way to incubate any "extra's" hence why trying to fit all to ensure a good hatch rate. Wondering if too many might compromise the lot though also. :-/
