Panic time! It's going to get down to about 20 degrees tonight, and a friend said my chickens might freeze to death because the coop is not insulated. I put some wood shavings in the nest box area, but in the top part where the perches are, it's wire underneath and the shavings just fall through.

Edited to add: I just put some thick cardboard down and put wood shavings on top. There are two waterers, one on the top where they are at night and one underneath. I took the bottom one out until tomorrow so it won't freeze.
I'm not sure how your coop is set up.

So curiosity was killing so I checked the other three that haven’t hatched. I hear chirp chirp coming from them. Candled them sure enough I have two still alive and one that isn’t fully developed. So how long do you guys typically let the others be to hatch?
Give them a couple more day's. If you think that the one that isn't fully developed is dead, it can be tossed because you wouldn't want it to explode in there. It would be a very stinky mess. If you think that one is still alive, then give it the couple more day's and see what happens.
