    Have neighbor chicken sitting on a nest Started out with 2 sets of eggs 1st set went by way side from 2 different chickens. After 1st nest demise decided to put 2nd nest in more secure set up. Off of ground in a container with selmenela treated nesting material she has been on nest at least 2 weeks or more if not a little more. Have offered her food she doesn t want just sits on eggs. I check on here regularly. She is doing fine. How long is gestation period and do I need to do something for her that I am not aware of. CKN WHR

    [​IMG] 21 days is the incubation period for chicken eggs. Good luck for a successful hatch.

    That would be a fun adventure to have happen around here... my one broody almost made it to the neighbor's yard. Ooo, almost to hatching time!
