what went wrong?
this was my first time, hen started setting 3-15 or 3-16 on 18 eggs in homemade nest box inside of coop. i never bothered her except just to peek in while she would come out to eat and the occasional egg count. i thought 4-6 (tomorrow) would be hatch day but i just went to check on her and she was on the roost. i tried to put her on the nest but she would not cooperate so in my last attempts to salvage anything i pulled the nest box and put it under the heat lamp. the egg count is up to 26 and has little bugs on everything.
i dont know what went wrong
