Mellow, my Silkie, is on her second broody cycle (the first time she gave it up after about a week). She has one of her own eggs under her and two green EE eggs. She made her own nest in the coop and sat on it patiently, but after a couple of weeks I was concerned about the other chickens messing with the eggs, so we brought her inside. She's now in a dog crate in the garage, with a nice nest box inside. She is still sitting contentedly, and gets up once or twice a day to eat and poop. We didn't make a note of the exact day she started sitting, but we are pretty sure this is the end of the third week. I expect Mellow's own little silkie egg will hatch first, since the others came from another hen. Should I be worried if they don't hatch today or tomorrow? I candled the eggs around day 10, and the EE eggs are almost impossible to see anything in, but they were definitely darker along one side. I could take another look, but I don't want to disturb them too much. Thoughts?
