Hen laid first egg today. Got one hen three roosters. Dont ask. Hen dumped egg in the basket under an awning. Happy hen. However she left it and ran off with the roosters. I thought she was supposed to sit on the thing until a chick emerged like penguins or other normal birds. Maid from Philippines said that that is how they do it. She runs off and lays anther egg tomorrow and when she has finished laying she sits on them and presto bingo out comes the chicks. I asked her what her hatch rate was and we got vague. Er Some dont hatch. I tried putting the hen in the coop with the egg in the basket but she is totally, just as the maid said smilingly, not interested in sitting on it. The egg is COLD. Does it have to be kept warm? Is this the way it all happens the way my maid from Philippines says where it is undoubtedly hot. I am in Malaysia where it is about 88 at night and 93-100 during the day. Today it rained and was cold. The egg is cold. No one has incubators here. Please help and thanks.
