Our bantam chickens we keep at our friends house for our garden is too small, there is a cock and hen there, and 2 days ago we went there to see how they were doing, and they had 6 eggs, we know there fertile because our friend saw them breeding a few times, so anyway, the hen wasnt sitting on the eggs yet, and my mum wanted to leave the eggs with her until she lays more to see if she sits on them then, ( she read that hens only sit on eggs if they have 10 eggs? ) but i took one home with me too try and hatch it myself, incase the hen doesnt sit on the eggs, we cant afford and incubator and we have no styrafoam box's and lamps to use, so for the last 2 days the egg has been in our cat basket, you see, our cat basket has a heat mat in it, which is originally meant for reptiles... The cats also sit on the egg, the egg has been quite warm, and for humidity i spray some water on the blanket the egg is on... Yestorday, ( I know it was early for i had only been incubating it for 1 day ) i candled the egg, and saw nothing inside... But anyway, what should i do? Should i leave it on the heat mat until a few days before hatching? Or move it now? Because im not allowed to move the heat mat as the cats will fight over the other bed what also has a heat mat... The cat basket with heat mat is the only place right now... What should i do? Do you think the egg will hatch?
