admittedly, I'm an amateur at duck brooding. This is the first time I've attempted to let my girls hatch their eggs. In my research I missed where I should add a lip to the front of my hen's nesting house to prevent eggs from rolling out.
6 of her 10 eggs were laying outside, and I could see where she had attempted to get a few back in.
The temperature was in the 50's this morning, and I'm not sure how long they were left out. However, I picked them all up & put them just inside her nesting house. She immediately rolled them all back under her.
She's a first time mom, and the eggs didn't exactly feel warm. They roughly have a week until they're due to hatch. I guess what I'm wondering is if they're a lost cause?

The white Peking is the father and the chocolate and Blue Muscovy are the layers.
