Hi there, I am pretty new to chickens and I have a hen that's been sitting on eggs for a while now and I am wondering what to do when we hit 21 days?? She is in a nesting box (still in the coop with the other hens & roosters) it's off the ground a ways so should I be conserned about that if the eggs hatch? Do I need to move them down lower so they don't fall... I have read what to feed them if they hatch, do I still need to dip their beeks in water or does momma show them that?? Any other advice (does and don'ts) on raiseing them with mom would be great! I am also wondering if they don't hatch within a reasonable amount of time do I just take them all away and forget about it? She started sitting on them around the 15th of March and has been adding to the nest the whole time she now has 8 under her ( I know other hens have laid eggs in there too) I marked them but today she has two more than when I marked them early last week sometime...I know that isn't the way to do it but I am new so forgive me! I will know better for next time I guess. I will mark these two and now I will check everyday and take any new ones away! I have no way of knowing which ones were laid first so do I give her lots of time to try and hatch out the last ones laid even if the first ones don't hatch or do I take them all out after say like 30 days? I am really hoping at least some hatch out, that would be exciting! Thanks for any advice in advance!!
