Here at Rising Creek Farm we have had a hard time keeping our free range chickens, a Fox has cut our flock down to 1 rooster and 2 hens and if things weren't bad enough the unthinkable happened, I have never heard of this, but a Bear broke through the roof of the coupe and ate my rooster and my prized Buff Orpington hen "Blondie". I thought her bloodline was tragically lost but my wife found one of her eggs on the counter and there may still be hope. That's the reason for this thread. I have left the rearing to the chickens but now I'm in a desperate situation trying to save Blondies D.N.A., the egg has been sitting on the kitchen counter at about 73-75 degrees for 2 days, tomorrow 7-23 will be 3 days. The Egg has been moved a few times but it has been laying on it's side. I now have the egg in a carton point side down. does anyone have any idea if there is any chance of hatching this egg? If so what should I do? I do not have an incubator or the money to get one right away, but I do have a brood lamp. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
