    I had a broody hen and finally decided to let her hatch some eggs after i gave up on getting her to quit, however she set on the new eggs for 5 days and then i noticed that the clutch was taken over by another hen. but my question is... what are the eggs under the hen supposed to look like?
    mine are dirty and look gross but if they are still good they should hatch Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I have ensured that she has water and food and that it is not getting to horribly hot in the coop we have had Mid 90's for about 2 weeks now, I have cleaned out the bedding around her and she is getting mean when i get close to her, but overall I think it should be good. I just dont know about how the eggs should look.
