I have a pair of Chinese geese that are about a year old. They have been mating for about a month now. Yesterday I found 3 eggs in a nest in the barn but they were ice cold. Should I be collecting them and will they hatch? I am in Medina, Ohio and it has been 15-20 the last three days. I just hatched 10 of 12 chicken eggs from a month ago when it was just as cold. Any suggestions on collecting or just leaving the eggs alone. They have a nest in the hay but the female has never been sitting b ut I am a teacher and am gone all day.
