Ok. I have an adult Brahma that I got from a swap about 2 months ago. Last week we realized she's broody and since I've lost so many girls to foxes I was super excited to hatch some eggs. I have an EE rooster and 2 EE hens so I decided I'd let her sit on some EE eggs (I'm not even sure if 2 EEs will make another EE?) we gave her 8 eggs to sit on that were the most recently laid. She's been sitting on them faithfully for 7 days today. Last night I decided to move her because she's been getting disturbed by the other hens, as she's sitting in the favorite nest box. I waited till after dark and moved her eggs (ouch!) to my hospital coop. And realized there was another egg I hadn't marked in her clutch (I hadn't been checked in a couple days) I tried to candle them with the light from my cell phone and couldn't see much just a sort of long oval shadow, kind of covering the bottom if I laid it on its side, in the few I tried. I moved her into the coop with the eggs at about 9 pm. I went out at 11 to check on her and she wasn't sitting on the eggs so I moved them near to where she was sitting and she did get up and sit on them. It was prob about 75-80 degrees outside when this happened and very humid. So my questions are: is it ok that she didn't sit on them for 2 hours? Is it a bad sign that I couldn't see much when I tried to candle them? This morning she had moved one of the eggs to the other side of the coop. Should I toss that one? Should I candle them again at some point or leave them be? Is t bad that one of the eggs was added a few days after the rest? I didn't realize that keeping eggs for hatching was so complicated. We just keep them in a shelter on the kitchen counter. I wasn't turning them or doing anything specific. I am a first time chicken keeper and never hatched any thanks for any help!!!
