My hen hatched 7 chicks over the weekend. she isnt sitting the nest anymore but she still has eggs in the nest box but she had the rest out in the pen with the big chickens. 2 drowned. I found 1 chick in the nestbox that recently hatched(yesterday).. thought it was dead... today momma is out in the run . she has been out there everytime I look.(i left the rest of the eggs in for a couple of days to make sure no more was gonna hatch.) today I find 2 more eggs hatched... Is it possible the texas heat is enough that momma doesnt have to sit them? my mom says its like pop corn.
