We are new to this and don't know whether to remove them in a few days or just let her do her thing until she decides not to. Is there a chance that some will still hatch? Thanks!- Robin

Hi Robin. This may be a stupid question but are you sure the eggs are fertilized? If so, I would give it a couple days. 19 eggs are a lot for one hen to cover but she should still hatch some. Good luck and let us know the outcome.
