Day 22 not a sign of pipping - eggs with broody hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Advice needed, I have a broody hen sat on some eggs, they're feeling quite heavy but no sign of any pipping on day 22. She's kicked a couple of eggs out, but very clingy with the others. Are they likely to be viable? Can I candle with a strong torch?

Welcome to BYC :frow It won't harm to candle them and see what's going on in there. Fingers crossed...
