Hubby & I had slipped 2 chicks under my BO Hen that has a single chick that hatched last Sat. I didn't want the chick to be completely on it's own & so I thought slipping 1 or 2 of my chicks from the bator under the hen would be a good idea. It went pretty smooth & of course we waited till we were under darkness but it was so dark I couldn't see the hen or anything. She sounded good & like she was cooing at it like she does when she's calling her single chick but oh I'm sweating it a bit here. Hubby said "well she did peck at me but it was warm under her. Now it's not only dark but raining once again here in NJ & I wouldn't be able to see or hear anything now.. I have a baby cam that I use in the chicken coop & I should have moved it tonight to that small coop. Of coure I still would be able to really see in the dark..... Crossing fingers all is well in the morning...
