Hey,
Our young broody has successfully hatched two eggs 24 hours ago (beautiful little grey chicks). The third egg has no signs of movement and no pipping. I candled it quickly last night, it looks developed, nice air sac, some red veins, though most of the egg was dark.
How long do I leave it?

I've had chicks hatch from day 21-25 in the same clutch. That was with incubator chicks. The only trouble is that the broody will get up at some point, to start showing the chicks food, water, etc. I don't have much broody hatch experience, so hopefully somebody will chime in with their experience. I would leave the egg for a few more days, as long as she's willing to sit on it. Good luck.
