Snow and nests

Was wondering how the recent snow could effect nesting hens. I would figure if she is done laying and sitting on the nest there is a better chance of survival but if she wasn't done laying and then got 10" of snow on her nest how would those fair?

Re: Snow and nests

The hens will likely re-nest if they've lost it in the snow being that it is still pretty early. The gobblers where I'll be hunting Saturday were all fired up this morning, and very receptive. Haven't found a henned up bird yet, and hoping it lasts for two more days...
