    I have 2 hens setting on one nest, and it's been cold here when they first started to set..

    I'm hoping to see a nest full by this Wed. Thur..

    So good luck to you..

    is the chick in a bator, or under a broody? if in bator it can stay in there for up three days with out food or water. and getting chicks from store will be fine, i put chicks in day old chicks with three week old chicks all the time. william
