Its 105 today and my chicks are hatching. Mom is really hot. Not sure what to do. I put a fan on but not directly on them. Maybe i should put iit directly on them...

A little on the crazy side.
The Broody and the chicks should be fine. I thought that my broody was overheating when it was hatching day and the day itself was a little hot -but she had shade and access to food and water, She was better than ever.

I wouldn't place the fan directly on them... At that point of hatch a chill like a fan could be fatal. Just let nature take its course.

Best of luck
