    Well, my hen Brook decided to start sitting on eggs when it got down to about 14 degrees at night. Will the eggs hatch? Anyone had a hen hatch babies when it gets this cold?

    I had one, not long back, hatch 9 babies out in the freesing weather. It was getting around 7F here at night at that time. I didn't make it to them before she took them outside though and lost them all. If you do let her set just make sure to mark the date and check on them constantly the last few days in case you need to move them to a brooder.
