My Hen (Dottie) laid 3 eggs nested a few hours then left not to return until the next day, today she laid 1 more sat a few hours and left again. First of all will (if they area chick to be) hatch due to her not being consistent with nesting? I have since stuck the eggs under my lazy cat she could care less that they are there and sleeps in one position for about 15 hours. Will she be a sufficient surrogate along with a heat lamp at night? I know it sounds crazy but I don't have all that stuff and only one Guinea hen and one male.
