#1 is up checking for new chicks now. I only have hope for the last 4 eggs set. Think the 3 other possibles are dead, but they are still sitting, so we'll give a couple more days.
No heat lamp. The light keeps them awake, so I made a little cave out of a heating pad. They crawl under and it feels more like a real mama to them. Lots of contented happy peeping sounds. I still have to get some good pictures.
#1 reports- no new chicks. no pips.
a regular heating pad ? dont they shut off after 2 hrs.? how you keep it arched up ? pics. definitely in order. sorry no more.
