    I have a momma sitting on eggs.....we are at day 19. There have been a couple of times that I have gone out and she was not on the eggs and they were cold. Do you think they will still hatch?
    Thanks Tink

    Most hens do get up and move around some off the nest...to eat, drink and take a poo..Some take as long as 20 to 30 minutes....I'm sure she knows what she is doing...give her time...towards the last part of her hatch she should stick like glue on the nest......

    No...I was reading on how to make one. I guess maybe that might be something to do.
