hey there all I have 7 eggs in my incubator that will be hatching in the next ten days, Im wondering how long I should plan on keeping them out of the weather. I live in WV and it gets pretty cold here in January and February. (lows in the single digits). I have a broody hen, and was wondering if I could utilize her after the chicks hatch, to help keep them warm... kinda like a foster mom would this work? I have a place set up in the garage for the chicks that will last a few weeks, and I have a heat lamp in the hen house that keeps it from freezing, but Im starting to think I may have house chickens till spring. Is there a way to use my broody hen to make us all happy?
