Its 105 today and my chicks are hatching. Mom is really hot. Not sure what to do. I put a fan on but not directly on them. Maybe i should put iit directly on them...

If they are in the shade and have access to water and a good dirt bath they will be fine.  BTW 105 degrees F is the body temp of a chicken.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.

The Broody and the chicks should be fine. I thought that my broody was overheating  when it was  hatching day and the day itself was a little hot -but she had shade and access to food and water, She was better than ever.

 

I wouldn't place the fan directly on them... At that point of hatch a chill like a fan could be fatal. Just let nature take its course.

 

Best of luck :thumbsup
