    I have 4 eggs with movement inside however my broody hen gave up on them today I have her 3 hours to come back for them and never did, but I don't have an incubator either. Should I just give up and throw eggs out or can I still do something to keep them alive?

    If I were you, I would keep your eggs under a grow light, if you have one. When we have our chicks that we kept them under that, it was very warm. How old are your eggs? Anyways, if you don't see movement with 2 weeks, I would throw them away.

    Sincerely, Pyotr

    Could you borrow or rent an incubator?

    I'm also interested in knowing if you had any luck with the eggs. It would be nice to have an update!
