I have an EE who has been laying eggs for MAYBE 2 months. The EE was hatched at the end of June. She is now determined to hatch some eggs. She will not get out of the nesting box unless we make her. I'm okay with letting her hatch a couple eggs but I'm worried about what to do with the baby chicks once they hatch. It's COLD, with temps no warmer than 20. It will continue to be cold here until February or March. So if I let her hatch, do I need to worry about raising the chicks in the house or will she keep them warm and safe in the chicken house? Our chicken house is safe from predators and relatively warm, but not heated. And if I let her hatch, should I try to get her to be broody somewhere other than the nesting box? Like a dog crate or something?
