well thats pretty much my question can i put my one chick that hatched under the broody during the daytime or does it have to be at night? how can i check on them if its at night and im asleep and its dark and, and, and ... this was a bad hatch. out of the 10 eggs shipped to me only 4 made it to lockdown and of those 4 only 1 hatched ok. 2 hatched and died they had crossed breaks and no eyes and the 3rd didnt hatch, died in the shell. my broody is a serama and this is her first time broody and since she is so tiny i could only fit 3 eggs under her of which none developed. so how do i tell if she accepts the chick?
