    I have eight eggs in the nest box. I was hoping to have my hen sit on them (im a newb !) hehe SoI was thinking maybe I could give someone the eggs w an incubator or a broody hen , the oldest eggs is 8 days. Or just cook them and give to the hens too afraid to gather and eat after sitting in 90 deg weather . Thanks for ya'lls time [​IMG]

    After sitting for 8 days in 90 degree weather you may have eggs that have begun incubation...IF you have a roo that is. Candle them to see [​IMG] If you see some veins then you know [​IMG]
