In the Brooder

Ok so I had 2 hens sitting on some eggs. 1 hen had 8 days and the other one only had 1 day. The hen with 8 days stopped sitting on the eggs so I removed the eggs from her and put them under the hen that had a day. I put the clutch of eggs from the hen with one day on my counter in case any other hen went broody. Surprisingly, today another hen went broody so I put the eggs on my counter under her but I was wondering if the eggs will still hatch because they had been sat on for a day and a half. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Pretty iffy. Depends on the temp on your counter. Once the embryo has started developing, if it's internal egg temp drops too low, it will die.
