    Question:
    Do you cull eggs that aren’t developing? I have a broody sitting on a large clutch. I’d like to cull if I can be more positive about which have quit to give her less to sit on.

    Yep, I pull 'duds' at about 10-14 days...as soon as I'm sure they are duds.

    Yes, every week. I've had broody hens before. I think the best time to check is at night. You probably should mark each egg so you know what has been checked.
    For me, I have been using an incubator. Depending on how often you need to add water is when I check the eggs. I figured if it's going to be open for adding water, it's the best time to check. This way they stay undisturbed as long as possible.
