I have my first broody and today is day 21, so they should be hatching. I really want to be there for the hatching, but what I need to know is if the broody will get off her eggs to let them hatch, or if they hatch under her. This is Indy's first time hatching, but I hatched her and her two brothers, and sister, in an incubator. She is a year old golden pheasant and has been very good on her eggs, never leaving them for too long, only to eat, drink, poop whatever. But if she is going to sit on the eggs the whole time it would be a bit disappointing as I have been waiting 3 weeks for these babies. I managed to candle 1 on day 6, and it looked pretty healthy, and another 1 on day 12 which also looked healthy, but after that I didn't catch her off her nest for a while.
