I am looking at trying my hand at hatching some eggs - if now is a bad time to do this - please tell me.
I live in Al, no Banjo, but right now we are very hot and humid. Do you still need the lights and everything (tracor supply sells a kit that is a cardboard exterior wall and the feed and water for 2-3 chicks??? So can I put the chick in a safe, totally inclosed area in my yard in a very shady place and proved everything other than the heat lamp - or do I need a fan? Do I still need a heat lamp?
We bought our first chickens from a lady who hatches hers in the winter, and raises them in her garage until they are big enough to go into the barn - so that is my only exposure!
help greatly appreciated! :)
