For the 1st time we've put two eggs under Mireille, one of our three french hens. The eggs we were given were supposedly fertilised - we just have hens and no cockerels. The 21 days are up today but I can't hear any pipping. I know I could try the torchlight/candling technique but I'd rather not disturb the sitting hen. My question is: Are we 100% likely to not have either egg hatch, or should I leave it a bit longer? We are all on tenterhooks after counting the days... If it is a no-go, then can anyone give tips for rehabilitating a broody hen back into the team? Thanks for any suggestions...this is my first go at posting on the Backyardchickens forum.
