Well my hen decided to sit on her eggs and after weeks of sitting she got off of the nest. I decided to candle the eggs, there were three just about to hatch, totally solid. Several others were in various stages of development all the way down to just a faint spot. Others were clear. I removed the clear and leflt all the others. The only problem was that I think the hen didn't want to sit anymore. All the chickens were up on the logs roosting and she was pacing back and forth. I didn't see her sit, maybe she did, I'll find out in the AM. I'm thinking maybe the chicks started peeping in the eggs and she got scared and left the nest? At least I know my rooster is fertile because I'm getting an incubator this week and plan on incubating my first batch of eggs next Saturday.
