    If I let the present broody sit, will the heat (sometimes well over 100 degrees) be an issue with the eggs?

    No it won't. I had a lady in TX tell me one time that it gets over 110 there some times and momma's still hatch chicks. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry I wanted to add, can you put some water by her so she can get a drink?
