    She has gone broody the last 2 years on May, this year shes early. Some of the eggs shes on are from young pullets so I took those out, very small. The larger eggs are real cold. theyve probably been out all night and it was in the teens last night. If I give her those will they hatch, does it matter that theyve been cold, I dont think frozen. Also ive had some out on the counter for about 3 days, can I give her some of those?

    Won't hurt to try the cold eggs and yes the ones on the counter will be just fine. I've stored up eggs here at home for 3 weeks before and had good hatches.
