I have Sophia sitting on her eggs in the dining room. The only place I had to put her was in the plastic tote that we use as a brooder when they're tiny. The grow out pen on the porch is occupied by the birds from the swap, as they have only just begun to be big enough to start meet & greet. The little Orp is still a bit little. The others are probably just right.
Now, here come the questions to you experience hatchers:
1 Sophia has been on them without a break since Friday. I only started hearing the peeps under her this morning. Other than that, I have no idea what's happening under there. DO I need to just leave her, or is it safe to maybe lift her a bit & check out who's hatching and who's not? I don't want broodzilla to take my hand off, and I don't wanna stress her or the babies out.
2 If both hatch alright, I assume they can stay in the container with momma for a bit without supplemental heat, because they have her for that?
Since the grow out pen is occupied I can't put them in with the others.
