We're new to this, and so far haven't had any luck. We didn't have a good system of marking eggs and keeping track of time at first, but we did sort of start to figure things out. It's been about 23 days since we marked a set of 14 eggs for the hen to sit on and we still don't have any chicks. When I went to check them this morning one egg was cracked open and stunk bad. I removed it and checked it out and there was a lot of mushy yellow in it, and a fairly formed chick inside. Where's it's been over 3 weeks should I assume that all of them are rotten and not going to hatch? We don't have a way to check them to see progress. Should we toss all of the rest and try to start over or just let her keep sitting on them? I don't know at what point to give up and remove them all. Any advice would be very helpful. I can't wait until I have this procedure down correctly and we get some baby chicks!!
