    Hi guys

    basicalllyy we've got 12 eggs, and yesterday was Day 21. We had two yesterday but they died very quickly after they came out. We had one last night which survived, and another one this morning which i didnt help (other than placiing it in my hands).

    We have a chicken that has been sitting on these eggs

    I told mum to check the other eggs to see if there is any form of life, and mum began cracking them open carefully. 3 of the remaining eggs had nothing, and we threw them out,

    However, the 4th one we tried had A LOT of blood inside. It is day 22 now, so we thought they'd be ready to come out. We've put the egg back under the chicken now. Is there any chance it will still become a chick at this late stage since there is no sign of life other than the blood (rather than a yolk)
