My unknown breed hen went broody about 3 weeks ago and though I tried to take eggs from under here and leave her with an empty nest, she still insisted on sitting. So, I got a few hopefully fertile eggs from a friend and she began sitting on Monday, 14 May 12. I tried candling last night (20 May 12) but not sure what I am looking for and if my flashlight was strong enough, as I couldn't really even see in the eggs (hoping that is a good sign). Only one egg I saw what I believe was a small air pocket at the top of the egg...but like I said this is my first time and I have no idea what if anything I was suppose to see at day 6. Anyways, here's to happy hatching (hopefully) and a pic of my girl working hard. Oh and if any one can tell what breed she is that would be great! She is a small hen and lays small eggs, but is sitting on medium to large eggs right now.
