My broody bantee successful hatched one egg last night and we rushed the baby chick inside to get under a heat lamp. She is doing fine so far. I checked her other egg this morning in 30 degree weather and could hear the chirps and pecks from inside the egg. I brought the egg inside and put it under a 100 degree heat lamp because of the cold weather. I heard it chirp several times throughout the day but haven't heard anything for the last few hours. It has been about 14 hours since I first heard the chirps and about four hours since I last heard them. How long should I give this egg to hatch? Should I have just left it under Mom instead of bringing it in? THis is m first batch of babies.
THanks for an help.
