My broody hen is on day 20, is the event random or do they always hatch at a certain time of day, kind of light related? God I hope its a fetilised egg! She will be devasted

Mine usually start pipping at night then come out during the day and I do get a lot at night...
So its about equal

Mine always seem to have the knack of being ready to rotate and hatch just as I'm off to bed and have to go to work the next morning! It certainly feels that way

Hello Pete55
What a coincidence, I have just read your post about egg hatching - ! All I can say is I am glad I am leaving her to it!
