    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. [​IMG]


    See pics on pg 3!![​IMG]

    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 [​IMG] 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 [​IMG]
