    I have a hen that went broody. Its getting cold here. Will she be able to hatch them in the cold?

    I have had broodys hatch chicks in December without any problems. Like any bird they just need a draft free environment.

    Yeah, I haven't found the nest yet. It could be anywhere in the woods.
