    So 21 or so days ago i posted on here wondering what breed of chicken laid this egg, well last night it pipped and hatched out by this morning. the other 2 eggs havent hatched yet, i can see 1 moving inside the egg the other is i cant see anything, how many days should i let her sit on it before i take the eggs away and move baby from nest to the floor?
    First pic few weeks ago trying to figure out waht breed.

    And when i went out there about noon today i found this little guy under there, how long should i wait to see if the other eggs hatch before i move them? and prob cant tell breed yet can we, its got feathers on its legs, father is a light brahma mother is either buff orpington, light brahma, production red, almost 99 percent sure it aint one of the leghorns.

    Wait until the 24-25th day to remove the eggs.
