    My broody hen has been doing very good for the last 20 days. When I went to go check on her this morning I found an egg that was out of the nest. It's 20 days develop. Will it survive

    It depends how long it was not under the hen
    Put it under the hen and if it hatches it's alive and if it doesn't it died.
    Goodluck with it and I hope it hatches

    Not yet, it's the 22 day so it should be soon. I had 2 barred rock hens, 1 barred rock rooster and 1 Americana hen. I really hope it hatches
