    My hen hatched her first chick over the weekend!! Out of 12 eggs... Only one! But being her first time I'm thrilled!

    I also have eggs in the incubator that hatched/hatching now. What are the chances I can sneak these chicks under her? She's doing great with the one she had! Any tips?!

    Thank you!!

    I think if would be safe to. I just tossed two more under my hen last night after her two a week earlier. I don't think she even noticed they weren't there before.
