Hey all! I haven't been around in a while, but I have a question and I know I can find an answer/advice here. My brother is clearing a part of the yard that's really brushy, so we can build a dog pen there. Apparently one of our little OEGB hens decided to build a nest in the brush. He'd been working for about an hour...well Mama chicken didn't move. He couldn't see her through the brush...and well..she's no longer with us. No idea why she didn't run when she heard the lawnmower. Most of the eggs made it through..only one broke..there are 10 more. Eight of them are little white eggs that are hers, and 2 are a little bit larger white eggs that I believe belong to my standard old english game hen. Anyway..at first my brother though the one that broke was just yolk and white, so we were going to chuck the eggs. Then he brought in the other eggs and said that there was some blood with the other, so they may be further along than we thought. I'm heating up the incubator now. The one and only time I tried to hatch I was unsuccessful, so I don't know why I'm even trying. My question is, how can I incubate these eggs without knowing how long she'd been sitting on them. Can I tell how far they are by candling? Anyone ever try to incubate eggs that they weren't sure how long they'd been developing? Thanks in advance for any help/advice anyone can offer.
