    I have an egg just starting to hatch so I bought it in and put it under the light with the other new chickies. Now I am second guessing my decision, should I take it back to its momma?
    I have been taking them as the hatch from the momma but I read over the weekend that was a bad idea.

    It is too cold out and momma likes to keep them where the turkeys can get to them. We have been bringing the in till they feather out then taking them back outside.
    I know taking them is wrong but I am trying to figure out how to keep them safe. Everytime one of them dies, it makes me cry.
