    You don't say how many she's sitting on, but I think she'll be better at it than you! Just give her a dry place to stay and feed her well. She'll teach the babies and keep them snug, and she has just the right heat and humidity to do the job.

    I had a banty to hatch a clutch in January, when the temps were in the low teens. The babies were fine.[​IMG]

    Right on! She'll do fine...
    if you are really concerned, perhaps add a light for them for extra warmth.​
