Do you think the eggs laid already will be frozen ?? therefor leaving the hen laying on dead eggs ?

I'm not a pro but I would say that the snow insulated them from the cold weather. I think if there was a problem with them the hen will realize it and start a new nest. I ran accross a nest a couple years ago with 6 eggs in it, we had some colder weather a few days before, the nest was not used again. After about a week predators found the nest and ate the eggs. Baffeling at times the way nature works :? :roll:
