OK, I am in a pickle, please help. I have 2 dozen eggs to hatch. A dozen are under my broody as of last night and a dozen will be hatched through an incubator getting put in today or tomorrow. Assuming a 90%+ hatch rate (I know my broody gets about 100% based on the last 2 times she was broody.) I will have too many chicks for her to sit on and keep warm naturally, but can I give them a heat lamp so they can sit "around" her? She is an AMAZING Momma. Comparing her mothering skills compared to my other broody earlier this year, there was NO comparison, she was shockingly protective and GREAT at keeping track of the little bugars and teaching them the chickeny ways. So, can I sneak the newly hatched in with the existing babies? I am only expecting a 1 or 2 day difference between them (4-5 days at most!) Can she handle 20+ babies if I add a heat lamp to keep them warm? I am so anxious, please let me know what you think. Thanks!!
