    Hello I was just wondering why my broody hen hasn't hatched any chicks yet. One day I came across a pipped one and decided to let the broody hen continue to hatch it but when I came back a couple days later there was no chicks or sign of hatching. Its been way more than 21 days and when I candled their eggs recently they had young chicks developing/ Any advice or answers would be appreciated. Thanks!
