    YAY! Sally did it! I'm so excited! I think I set the eggs under her on Thanksgiving or the day before. Should I take the ones that did not hatch away or if no more pip by this evening?

    Thanks! I'm thinking Sally is an old hand at raising a brood. She was doing it for the guy I got her from. Hopefully she'll know when to give/get up. I just worry about her condition. She's such a gentle and tolerant hen. I've been feeding her pears and other treats on the nest. She seems grateful. I'll be bringing her and the lil ones inside this weekend. Our seventy degree temps are fixin' to drop.

    Congrats to you and Sally!
    I'd probably leave the eggs for a day longer...
