Well, my hen's been sitting for awhile [10+ days] and today i noticed she'd pushed an egg out of the nest, i figured it was a bad egg but i still decided to take a look to make sure things were actually developing and she wasn't wasting her time there.



See pics on pg 3!!

It is sad if they die. Yesterday my daughter was outside with the chickens and the babies. Still have 5 broodies sitting..... Anyways 1 egg was stepped on by a goose and the it was only day 15. My daughter was devastated and called me crying hysterical cause the other chickens grabbed it before she even had a chance to pick it up. Poor little thing!

Good Luck with your hatch!!

Looks like i may have some babies tonight/tomorrow! broodies got up so i took the opportunity to candle one of them, looks like he's started to move into the air cell! the best part is i'm gone at a horse show tomorrow
so when i get home at 10pm I'll probably have babies! at least i won't be sitting around waiting for them to hatch
