Hello! I have a broody hen and her chicks were supposed to hatch on Saturday or Sunday. They haven't hatched yet... is all hope lost, or might the little guys be okay? Darcy, the broody, seems to think they're gonna hatch. She is all puffed up and has started attacking hens, as past broodies have done right before a hatch. She has also placed the straw in her nest close to her, as if she was worried a chick might fall out. I haven't heard any cheeping, but she hasn't gotten off her nest in a while... Any ideas or advice? Thanks so much!!!
