I have a hen who is about a week from her due date of her eggs hatching. We are having EXTREME heat coming this weekend. 105-108 degrees for 2-3 days in a row. I am wondering if I should just take the eggs and finish them in an incubator and give her a rest and a chance to drink more, or if I should just let her be??? I am scared she will not be drinking enough. I also can put misters on her but Im scared they will wet the eggs. PLEASE HELP this weather is coming in 2 days!! Could the eggs over heat and we loose them as well?? Still a new chicken mom and Im freaking out!!!
P.S. She is a large fowl Orpington with tons of feathers and fluf
