I haven't collected eggs in 3 days-there are about 8 eggs right now in one of the nesting boxes. I'm afraid to crack one open to see if it's fertile but would love to set up a nest in a quiet area and see if 1 of my 2 hens will set them. I was thinking about putting the hen in there and leave her w/food and water for a few days. What do you think? Is it too late to eat the eggs since they've been in the nest for several days? I'm just not sure what to do. Thanks!
