I was wondering if any of you try incubating eggs in the winter. And if anyone has had any problems with either the hatch or taking the chicks outside once they get their feathers. My duaghter is wanting to try to hatch out a few chicks. I just dont want to have a bunch hatch and once they get to big for the brooder we kick them out in the coop and have them get to cold and die. It is already getting cold enough here that I have to put a heat lamp inside of the coop and run it most of the night so that the chickens I have dont get to cold. we are dropping below zero some nights and the wind is horribly cold to.
