I have a broody sitting on 11 that was supposed to start yesterday....

. I know something is going on in there because she won't get up AT ALL--which is unusual for her. With my anxiety over these chicks my husband is convinced that I need an incubator so that I can SEE what is going on

Incubatoring is the best! I have a hard time though even with that, I can't imagine what it would be like if I couldn't see.

Well, I just went out to check on her and she kicked out a dud egg, got up and took a poo..........I'm guessing there's no babies yet if she got up. How about you???

Not home yet from work but wishing I was

Dud egg? was it just empty or did it get cracked and you found it was just not developed? I really need to call home and see if we have any

I think I'll go do that. If I find I have some, I'll edit. Keep me updated on yours

I'm a nervous hatcher.

Day 21 is tomarrow for me and I am about to die with anxiety, I said it is like waiting for popcorn to pop or watching a pot of water. I just keep running the last 20 days thru my head to see if I can pick out something that might cause them to not hatch! Good Luck to you both.

In this hatch, I have 1 Anaconna egg, 1 OEQ Bantum(pretty sure it quit but wasn't positive so I left it) 10 RIR and 16 Black Australorp. I am thinking I am going to go crazy waiting for them to hatch. I haven't stared at that bator as much in the first 18 days. At this point I am reasoning with my self since this is my first chicken hatch that if I get one I should be happy but then there is they side of me looking at all 28 eggs thinking how cool would it be if I got close to a 100% hatch. Just a waiting game now and I think they are gonna win!

For the eggs under mine I have 3 EE's, 1 Cochin, 1 Leghorn, and 5 Barred Rocks.......just a combination of my barnyard mix-

The dud she kicked out just wasn't developed at all. I didn't candle because this wasn't her first rodeo and I figured she'd work it out....I want to run out there right now (it's 8 p.m.). I haven't checked on her since 2...
