We are on day 2. Not that we are counting days or anything.... But it's just amazing to realize that if our girl's eggs are fertile, (if they aren't I know 4 roosters that are going to be wearing boxer shorts instead of tighty whities) that there are little hearts already beating in those eggs.
The last three days since Aggie started incubating her eggs, the other hens aren't laying worth a darn. We were getting 7-9 eggs a day. The day Aggie started brooding there were 6, 5 she has tucked under her and one I brought in. Then yesterday, we got two eggs that also went under Aggie, and then today, another two. Co-incidental? Maybe because she has her own Occupation set up in their favorite box? Anybody else had that happen when a hen went broody?
Congratulations on the additional chicks, Alex1010. Of course we are all eagerly waiting pictures....
It sounds like you gave her eggs on 3 consecutive days? This would create a staggered hatch which can be problematic come hatch time. You can do a 'search this thread' for the phrase 'staggered hatch' to learn more about them.
