    Leave the eggs alone! They will hatch when they are ready. Give them a day or two.

    Good luck.

    In "MY" opinion You should NOT even be looking under the Broody----tilting/lifting her causes the Moisture to Escape----needed for the hatch. Just let the Broodys take care of the hatch. Your job is to set her Properly, keep any fresh layed eggs removed(if she is not by herself) till day 18 then leave her alone for a few days, Don't put food or water near her where she can eat without leaving the nest----if you do it will cause her to poop in the nest which can create a mess for the young chicks.

    Lol sounds you have a particularly active spell checker.

    As said, leave them and your hen alone. She will bring her brood out for you to see in a few days.
