    My button quail eggs came in the mail early and I did not see them outside. They were outside in the cold (30s) for about 6 hours but were insulated very well with furniture-type foam. Is there any point in trying to incubate these or is it a lost cause? I will not be able to order more eggs for a long time. Any advice is appreciated.

    It can't hurt to try but it might not work if I was you I'd wait till it gets warmer outside, if they completely froze and cracked open I'd say breakfast.

    If they didn't freeze in the box I'd say give it a try. You never know… [​IMG]
