Did you say no they don’t set on eggs in the dark

Same ? But how will they hatch if they get cold over night I don’t understand


Hi Wanda,

The parents have to sit on the eggs day and night. Depending on the species, both parents might take turns, or sometimes the hen does most of the incubating. If they leave the eggs at night, the eggs will not hatch.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
