    I have a hen that's been sitting on some eggs around 2 1/2 weeks or so.( Not sure exactly) anyhow, I checked under her tonight and one egg was slightly cracked all the way around. Is that normal? Does that mean a chick trying to get out? Could she have cracked it? What if the eggs are not fertile, would she continue to sit on them?

    Sounds like the egg is unzipping. :jumpy I'll bet there's a chick there in the morning!
