    I have a Buff Cochin who is sitting on Ameracauna/Cochin Eggs. (She adopted them because I took all of her eggs) As of today, she is getting up, and laying back down. She has done this numerous times today. I can see the eggs, 2 of them, and the third one I am unable to see. Is this normal behavior?[​IMG]

    They are Pipping!!!! my hen is off of the eggs drinking about a pint of water and I was watching the eggs, they were being cracked open little by little, how long do they do this before they are free:confused:
