Okay, so today is day 11 of my Cochin setting 24/7 on 8 eggs. I tried to candle at day 4 but really could not see anything so today could not stand it and went out and candled them. Nothing!!! I'm thinking my Cochin roos. who just started breeding is not getting the job done right yet or they both have too many feathers to accomplish it. I'm really bummed out! Darn. I'm thinking of adding baby chicks under her as she is setting anyway and the feed store has some Plym Rocks & golden laced Wyandottes coming in Thurs. Do you think if its not at the 21 days of setting, a hen will accept chicks? Next wk's order doesn't have the kind I want. She accepted 2 last hatch but I added them while she was hatching the others. Any ideas?
