    well i bought eggs to go under my broody and today is day 20 on 10/07/09 and im down to 4 eggs starting with 9 my broody Casper she gets off once to do her business and eat. and then some go and lay and like laying in there and some eggs get broken but hopefully these 4 will hatch. there are 2 frizzle cochins and 2 mottled Cochins and i was wondering if its true what i have read that Cochins are early hatchers?

  2. Hi Hannah! Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you lost so many. Next time you might have to move the broody-girl so the other hens can't get to her nest.
    Those do tend to hatch on Day 20 for me here.
    Good luck!
