    Hii. My silkie (A) sat on 9 eggs for a few days but I removed them since her other eggs are due to hatch in a few days. They are now cold.
    My other silkie (B) went broody today. Can I put the 9 eggs under her or are they now bad since they were warm for a few days and have now gone cold?

    How long ago did you remove them? If fairly recently, they are probably still viable.

    That's a long time. They may not be viable.

    I'd pop them under, check in a week. If they are no good, you're not out anything.
