Hello, I need some information, I have a broody hen and I have fertile eggs. I am in Wisconsin and it is very cold right now. My coop is not heated, just a heat lamp. Can the eggs stay in the nesting box with the broody, I noticed if I leave eggs in the boxes she is sitting on them not 100% of the time though. Will she sit when she has a larger clutch of eggs or is it too cold for me to even think about leaving my hen hatch out chicks. If she is not setting on the eggs all the time will they freeze? I have read some people saying that they take eggs out of the refrigerator and put them in the incubator, Is this correct? The embryo doesn't freeze? Sorry if these seem like silly questions, but I have a lot of them. lol Should I wait till spring to let her hatch out some chicks? Thank you in advance for your input.
