    Hi all, I have a broody Banty Cochin, sitting on 4 banty cochin eggs. Two large fowl eggs already hatched under her, and those chicks are doing fine. One hatched yesterday and the second today. How much longer should I let her set on the banty eggs. Seems like they should have hatched first. Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Anne
