I am now on Day 20 with my Broody hen - I got Bielefelder eggs in the mail, and Buff Orpington eggs 2 days later. Buffy is sitting on both kinds of eggs, I put the extra eggs in a Brinsea Mini Advance when they arrived. I candle the incubated eggs more, I candled the Broody eggs yesterday (Day 19) and could see 5 eggs with a large air bubble, but wasn't able to see movement. Ditto the eggs in the incubator. The other eggs are transparent although several have small darkish blobs. Nothing smells, so I am not sure if they are just younger eggs???
I am so antsy now that we are close. Buffy lets me lift her out of her Nest Box so that she can eat, drink, and socialize - she heads back within 15 minutes.
Should I stop moving her now? Or can I move her until I see pipping?
This is worse than being pregnant!!! The anticipation is killing me. hoping this emo is fingers crossed!
