    I have a serama hen sitting on some eggs that aren't fertilized and I'm going to get some eggs that have been getting sat on by another chicken and it's about 1 1/2 hours away to put under my hen and I need to keep the eggs warm for that 1 1/2 until I get the eggs back under my hen. Any ideas how to keep them warm enough for that amount of time?

    I'd just put them all together in something cushy and try to high tail it home as fast as possible. Some of my broody hens spend more time off the nest when they take a break. Not to mention when I've lost power and my incubator didn't run for hours and those eggs still hatched.

    I think they'll be fine :)

    They will be okay for that amount of time.
