    She is in a cage by herself to prevent the hens/roosters/pullets/chicks from bugging. has a chick waterer and I put chick starter crumbles in there.

    Do I just wait? This is worse than the incubator!! [​IMG]

    I just feel like I should help her or do something! But I guess that its been happening naturally for many years. I just wish I could look at the eggs to see if there are any pips or anything? ahhh! [​IMG]

    You need to leave the house all day - go shopping or visiting. A watched nest never hatches.

    Or make this the day you wash all the windows in your house...
