So I had a hen a hen go broody, let her sit on some eggs, she was a great mother, I candled the eggs and they were developing perfectly. I have been efficient in hatching chicks the "natural" way but have not had ANY experiance in incubating. So it is with great panic that I realized my brrody hen is dead. There are feathers everywhere of her particular pattern and she is no longer on her eggs, also it looks like she has cracked one of them wich shows that she had not carefully removed herself from the nest but had been forced . The eggs were slightly warm and I candled them to see that they were still alive. I knew it was a long shot but I have placed them in my mini experimental incubator. I found the temp to set, set it, filled the water tray, placed the eggs inside, and closed the lid. This is a far as I know what to do and I really need tips and pointers and emergency chicken info now!!! I'll send pics of the incubator, can anyone identify it? Do they know how to use it?
The pictures the pictures are of each egg candled and of the incubator
