    So my hen has been setting on a nest for around a week. Today, someone let her out (didn't tell me) and forgot to put her back in. It's been 7-8 hours and around 80-90 degrees all day. Is it very likely that any survived? Thanks. [​IMG]

    The eggs should still be viable. Candle them in 3 or 4 days just to make sure.
