    Hi
    I have guineas roaming free in my yard.
    They have started laying eggs in two different locations in my yard, tonite suppose to get around 30 degrees and the hens are not sitting the eggs,
    should i pick them up or willthe eggs survive outside on this cold weather.
    I understand that if a mess with the nest the hen will go broody somewhere else but will the eggs survive the nite freeze.
    I do not want to loose all this egg.
    In one next i got around 15 the other next has well over 20 eggs i believe 2 hens are sharing the nextand i do not want to loose these eggs.
    How much cold weather the eggs will endure with out the hen being broody ?????

    the eggs will be ok in this coldsnap.leave them in their nest.because if you move them the guienie hens will find a new nesting area.an maybe even hide the eggs from you.
