    Hi,
    I offered to hatch shipped eggs for a person.she had eggs.
    I have broody's.
    It is day 22 and no action.the hens are still setting.really into it.will not get off the nest ect..
    My question is could there be a problem..... I thought day 21 for sure becaue I am using broody's.
    I also thought that perhaps the hatch rate for shipped eggs might be higher with broody's rather than the incubator........
    Is it possible we are not going to get a hatch.................
    I did not candle........
    Wouldn't care if they were my own eggs.............
    Feedback appreciated..............
