Hen laying eggs left over in nesting box

post #1 of 3

Hi All! my hen laid 10 eggs. 6 chicks so far in a day. 4 eggs she is still brooding on. When do I know it is time to discard any eggs that fail to hatch? Thank you in advance :)

Your hen will get off the nest on day two or three, so after that you can check them and discard them. Hopefully all were set on the same day.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
