This is my first hatching experience. My hen is a year old. She had 10 eggs she was nesting. Yesterday she hatched two eggs. Today she had them two out of the nest eatting and drinking and left the other eggs for over an hr. So I took the other eggs because they werent warm, and brought them in the house and put them under a heat lamp. After they warmed up I did the float test. They all moved. Im just hoping they will make it under the lamp. I live in country and cant find a thermometer at our dollar general. So I have a tote with a towel in it with 8 eggs, heat lamp, bowl of water, and a blanket covering half the tote. HELP!!
