    Since most of the broody hen threads I've found so far are either ended, or extremely long already, I figured I'd start a new one for anyone else who wanted a slower moving broody hen hatch a long. Well, moving on, one of my favorite hens (from my starter flock) went broody a few days ago. She a big gold laced Wyandotte who hatched three chicks last year. We're on day 5, and I'm gonna try to candle tonight. If she'll let me, I'll definitely post pictures!

    Well Galen, my broody would let me no where near her nest day 5, but today is day seven and I managed to get a good look at all of them. Ther eggs are kinda dirty, but it didnt have an effect last year so I'm not worried. Any opinions on which are live, dead, or were never fertilized in the first place? All we have rooster-wise in one bantam brahma, so I'm sure that about 50% are not fertilized. So, on to the pictures... What do you think?
