In the Brooder
- Sep 30, 2011
Please help. My pet hen died suddenly this morning. She was sitting on five (we believe) to be fertile eggs. She started sitting on them on the 14th. She was a dear pet, and am really hoping there is some way to keep the chicks. I'm looking for an incubator, but in the meantime, is there anything I can do to keep them warm here at home? I have them in a large plastic box, on the nest with a heating pad underneath... Please, if anyone has any ideas... I'd like to try to have them here at home since we live in such a isolated area....
