Hi all, I put 2 eggs under my broody BR on May 31st and 6 more on June 1. She is still in the hen house on a nest and only gotten off the nest very briefly. Tonite I went to check on her eggs and when I pulled one out to listen to it was bloody and yolky. Now I haven't messed with her eggs to much, only to candle them on Saturday nite. We were VERY gentle Are they starting to hatch already? or could they it have been damaged or broken by the hen herself. Or could one of the other hens when she was off the nest broken it. I guess what I'm asking is, is 21 days a hard and fast rule for an incubator and a broody hen or do they hatch sooner under a broody?? I have hatched eggs under this hen before and remember being surprised one day to find that the eggs had hatched. I don't remember however how many days she had sat on them. She has become very protective with in the last few days, more so than earlier Plus I don't know when I should move her.. I was going to move her after the hatch, but maybe I should move her sooner. Help please!
