you probably shouldn't, you might damage the eggs.....

OK so by chance, I had one fall off (ok so it was super loose and I took it off becaus eit was starting to slip) could I move THAT outside, and how could I keep it humid? would the temperature fluxuations damage it?

I'm not sure, it depends on what conditions it was in before

You could try and keep it humid out side and see if it works, if it does you could do it with the other ones, but I wouldn't recommend doing it with all of them at once(cause if it doesn't work you'd lose them all....)

You could keep it humid by having it in hot water(if water was what it was in before)and putting something over it so that the air wouldn't get out, or if it was out of water you could put it in a small jar and put a wet paper towel in the jar and something to keep the air from escaping
