Hubby decided to check up on what she is sitting on so made her lift up while he was cleaning a couple of days ago. I left 8 eggs for her to sit on. On Thursday last week he saw 3 peeking out from under her feathers that were all unmarked, so he brought them inside. I candled them and couldn't see any/much light shine through (brown eggs). So I candled another fresh one from that day and it glowed a bright golden. Looked at the 3 again and they were dark. So I told him I was NOT going to use them or even break them open. He would have to make the judgement call, but if he just left them inside they would go down the disposal so I'd never have to see the contents. He finally broke one open and said there was a small dark spot, the yolk was "creamy" looking and the white wasn't clear any longer. It was definitely growing. So he put the other 2 back under her. Then, a couple days later he made her stand up and counted 14 eggs!!! She has been sitting in there for over 2 weeks now. My fear is that they are going to hatch at vastly different times. This will be interesting. We don't have another broody and don't have an incubator. Some of them should be about 16 days along now, but obviously some are just in the first week. Any suggestions??????
