    So they won't eat the eggs.... but they will sleep in them. What a bunch of weirdos. As you can also see they don't sleep under the light. I assume that is because it is too hot? It's 90 degrees under the heat lamp and the heat lamp is over 4 feet from the floor. Any suggestions?

    Raise the heat lamp up a few inches to about 85-87 degrees

    I'm raising it every day. I just can't seem to get it to cool. It always stays right at 90 degrees. I turned it off for 15 minutes and went back in there and it was 80 degrees and they were all sleeping together under the light(that was turned off) the heat lamp is a 250 watt bulb. Should I switch it out for a regular light bulb? Like a 60 watt in the heat lamp housing? If I do that will the 'regular' light bother them as opposed to the red 'heat' light?

    I have a young Golden Cuckoo Marans pullet. My friend has a GCM rooster. Has anyone ever just let their hen "visit' a rooster? Can it work or do they fight each other? I want to keep my pullet and she wants to keep her rooster, but we would both like some fertile eggs. Any thoughts on this?

    I meant to say that my GCM is still a baby, but when she is older, can you use a stud chicken?

    Thanks! They are pretty cute little ladies.

    This is how they were when I went back in after having the lamp off for about 15 minutes.
