I have a broody Buff Orpington hen that is currently sitting on 12 Brahma eggs. I know I should have asked this BEFORE I gave her the eggs, but I didn't think of it until now! There is at least a few feet of snow on the ground, but the coop is off the ground. I have been using the deep litter method so there is about two feet of pine shavings and straw. Its also fully insulated and has a 250w heat lamp above the roost when it gets to -20 Celsius or colder. The temperatures range from 0C to -25C with spring coming soon! My question is, will the eggs be ok while she is setting and will the chicks be ok to stay with mum after they are born? Thank you for your help! This forum and its members have been invaluable to me!!
