    Crazy birds! Don't they know it's summer in California? It's hot! Yes I have 8 broodies. Heck I only have 3 other adult hens left that are laying. lol
    First bunch started hatching today plus I had my hatch in the incubator hatch today. WAY to many babies!
    I have a fan in the coup plus fresh water is very close to them. And when it's over 95 I put a frozen water bottle in the nest to help keep them cool (not near the eggs but on the side of the hen).
    I don't like having broodies since I don't keep any of their chicks. Such a hassle to sell them but I love watching them hatch.
