We haven't hatched eggs before, but we got a broody hen, and purchased some fertile eggs and we are lucky enough that today, day 22 we have 3 hatched babies! One bantam, one easter egger and one maran! Our question is right now they are under the momma who is still SO broody! They are all in the nesting box but we want to remove the babies so they will have food and water, plus there are still eggs under her that may possibly hatch. How warm does it have to be for the babies to be okay under a heat lamp? We went and purchased an 80watt heat lamp today from the feed store, got them some medicated chick start, electro lights for their water and a large plastic box for them to keep safe in. We have 2 heat lamps in there and a baby heater going, we havent removed them yet. Does anyone have any pointers for us!? We are new and want to do everything right for our babies!!
