In the Brooder
- Jul 9, 2011
My hen had recently decided to go broody, but its very cold at night now, here in northern Michigan. What I'm wondering is.. Will the eggs get too cold when she gets up to eat? It gets into the low teens at night and 20°-30° during the day. Im not even sure how many eggs shes sitting on, as she refuses to let new stick my hand under her to see. She starts clucking/ "growling" loudly and tries to peck me to death when I try to put my hand under her. I dont want to freak her out too much and have her risk breaking the eggs. So, I guess back to my question, will her eggs get ti cold when she gets off them to eat with such low temperatures?
