    I need help, new to this whole poultry world. Had a hen die to fly strike.
    She was better than 75% thru sitting on her eggs! What can I do for the eggs to ensure their survival? Incubator? What can I do overnight to keep them warm?

    Got another hen sitting? Stick them under her at night? If not try keeping them warm with a heating pad & run out to get an incubator first thing in the morning. Good luck
