    I found a hidden "nest" of 20!!!!!! eggs from one of my hens today. I put them in the incubator- fingers crossed that SOMETHING hatches out of them!!!

    Some of those may be too old to hatch (I'm assuming more than one hen has been using the nest), but good luck.

    It can't hurt to try.

    It was either throw them out or stick em in the incubator- so in they went. Be interested to see how many hatch. All from one hen most likely.

    They are hatching!!! 3 pips!!! Earlier than I expected- was forced to open the incubator and partition them off from the staggered eggs that are behind them. Fingers crossed they still make it...
