i don't think it was all that hot down on the floor of the coop (everyone is alive & well)
however the broody hen box is mounted rite below the rafters (so it's out of the way)
i'll have to go with a thermometer & see what reading i get.
it's cooled back down & i now have a pair of broody silkies sitting on about 15 eggs between them in the broody box
2 pips so far so i guess they will have chiks by tomorrow
well we are heading to the top of mount washington today
last year at this time i was waiting for Marily to arrive for the 1st time in boston
& 3 years ago we were in the province saying "I do"
take care all
