    My RIR got broody on us so i put 10 eggs under her 21 day ago. On day 20 3 hatched and on 21 4 more. SWEET. 1 egg was cracked inward so I opened it and it was about halfway developed but dead. That leaves 2 more, we'll see what happens today.

    My hen is broody and there are no eggs under her. Also, we had to get rid of our rooster a couple months ago, so she's sitting on an empty nest.[​IMG]
