Bird Nest Fails
If a birds egg is found cold in a nest is there a chance
that if warmed up again it could start to develop or would the egg die
strait away? I would love to know this because i am very fond of nature
and I am really interested in eggs. The other day I found a beautifl
little nest with 5 small blue eggs inside they were all quit cold.
The odds are very great this is a failed nest. First of all, you touched
the eggs! This often assures that the parents will not return. Many bird
species do not return after their eggs are introduced with a new scent.
