    It has bee over 100 degrees today...have 3 chicks running around this morning, hen got off the nest to poo & stuff and now is sitting near, but not on the nest. Two of the remaining 5 eggs are open wiht about a 1/4 inch hole and peeipng, but a long way from being out. Should I put the eggs under her? It is still 97 degrees in the hen house and I have a small fan on low just to stir a breeze. Am I doing the right things????
