We have 4 hens and decided to try our skills at hatching so we borrowed a friends rooster and have been collecting eggs for our incubator. The first batch didn't last because we couldn't keep the temp in the incubator regulated. Now that we have that straightened out and we start collecting for the second batch one of our hens has gotten her self way back in the corner or the "attic" of the coop and is sitting on her eggs. We live in Kansas, we think the eggs are due to hatch by the end of this month (February). It's been a mild winter and we have a heat lamp in the coop but I am not sure if it would be a good idea to leave the chicks with momma hen when they hatch or if we should collect them and bring them inside. Any thoughts?
