HELP! I've got a hen sitting on 5 fertilized eggs (about 95% sure they were) We are on day 22 ish and she hasn't moved. She is sitting in a little different position instead of hunkered down. I don't know if there are chicks under her or what. She doesn't like me getting near her at all. I need advice, please! How long should I wait, should I force her out just to see or leave her be for a few more days. Will she keep chicks under her for a while or will they show themselves to eat and drink.....
