    well, was out checking on the horses this morning and found an abandoned nest of eggs. i assume they are pheasant. i candled them (all 13!) and only 3 of them seemed still good. they were cold, but i brought them inside and have them in an egg carton right now. should i even try and put these guys in the bator? or are they already toast?

    Heck yes...put them in. They go dormant when chilled so they may be just fine once in the 'bator.

    If you candle them in 4-6 days and they are still clear...no harm done.
