    I am having trouble figuring out what day my chicken eggs are at. My hens weren't laying, but began laying while I was on vacation (Don't worry; I have a great setup), and now I don't have a clue what day they're on. I was hoping that you could help me out. I have two broody hens, and one's clutch seems to be behind the other's (But the eggs within each clutch look the same). Thank you SO much! Here are some pics of an egg from clutch #1 and an egg from clutch #2.

    Thanks again!

    There are no pictures. Candling the eggs can sometimes help, otherwise you will have to check daily for 21 days until you see they are hatching.

    Yes, I candled my eggs. And I apologize for the lack of pictures. I tried to upload them, but the app won't let me. I thought the thread was deleted, but I guess not, eh? I apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you so much for your help!
