    I purchased 12 BCM eggs for my Brodie hens I have 5 unhatched eggs. Hatch day was Sunday, how long do I continue to let them sit??

    2 eggs went missing
    1 hatched and died
    I accidentally squished one egg due to a weak spot in the egg and a mama the pecked at me( a week before hatch day)
    3 hatched healthy chicks.

    Candle the unhatched eggs to see if they're good. Most likely they won't be, but it does not hurt to check.
