My hen must have gotten mixed up and went to another nest leaving her eggs for about 7 hours when I noticed and put her back on the right nest. She has been sitting about 2 weeks on these eggs. It has been about 85 degrees here today. Are these eggs trash or should I let her sit on them and see what happens? When I touched the eggs, they were cool to the touch.

let her sit and see what happens. she may want to sit and decide she doesn’t want to anymore and she can abandon them.
