I have hen sitting on 6 eggs. She started with 15 but broke a lot of them. It is day 22 and nothing. We have a couple of roosters and she is separated. I haven’t candled recently, and I’m not exactly sure what I’m looking for at this point. Should I let her go another day or two? What should I do if they don’t hatch?

Either wait a few more days and then just take them all or try to get her to foster some chicks you bought. We always do that with the Pheonix when we have the chicks to spare and can find the bests since we think it keeps their instincts intact better
