Yup...saved 2 cold eggs and one fresh warm egg from my hens below freezing nest...she was not sitting on them yet...put them in incubator 21 days ago...one made it! wow. Oddly enough: the egg I wrote "cold ?" on is the one that made it!!!

One ugly chick...half naked-neck road/red...and other half speckled hen....ha ha ha very interesting mix!

He/She is gonna be so spoiled...you better believe it!
