    Hi, I let one of my bantam hens sit and she just hatched all 13 eggs. I live in Florida so it doesn't get cold,cold but it's been pretty cool for us the last 3 weeks or so. She hid in the edge of the woods and did a fine job!But I've always had great luck with my banny's.
    Wish you luck!

    I have a hen setting now back in november I had a hen try to hatch eggs out of 11 eggs only 1 hatched and it didnt hatch till day 26.

    The hen setting now her eggs are either too old or became cold before she began sitting on them. I'd say give it a try and let her do her thing. Put her in a nice warm draft free place and see what she can do.
