    Hi!
    My hen has been sitting on 4 eggs and I believe it is day 20. But I can't tell if they have hatched as my chicken will not allow me to look, and I can't hear over the other animals. What do I do?!

    Africa - near the equator
    Just leave her to it - theres no need to interfere. You will see the chicks popping out from under momma soon enough.
