    Be patient. You might not have all of them hatch for another 4-5 days.

    Welcome to BYC. Warning! This forum is addicting. I've never been on a forum before and am truly an addict here.

    Chicks have a mind of their own when it comes to hatching. (I am also a hatchaholic thanks to these guys.) I had 6 EE eggs in the incubator - 2 hatched day 20, 3 hatched day 21, and 1 hatched this am day 22. go figure. I'm waiting on 4 mystery eggs now day 20. Who knows when they'll show up.

    Welcome to BYC and good luck with your hatch. I am sure someone will come on with specifics about broody hen hatching. I have no experience. Have you tried doing a search. [​IMG]

    Sorry, no broody hen here yet (no eggs yet either). We have only used an incubator.
