    I have eggs under a broody banty. I candled at about day 12 and it was so exciting to see baby chicks inside.
    I set them Thursday, March 3 at 8 pm. Shouldnt I see or hear something by now?
    Dad is a Cochin, mom's are silkie, maran, and EE

    What does anyone think?

    Give it a little more time. Chicks don't always hatch on time.

    how much is a little bit more time? the mama was off more tonight to eat, so I hope that doesnt mean she doesnt hear them. But she went back on so I am still hoping.
    This is my first hatch.

    nothing yet, I am getting worried. Of Course we have to be getting 4 inches of snow. I am bringing her and the eggs to my basement so she is nice and warm.
