Day 28 and I eventually removed the eggs today from under my broody hen, so disappointed they did not hatch was my first time and I was so excited but now so sad , but broody hen was upset she went running around the run then promptly went back inside and is still sitting on nest even though no eggs there any more, how do I get her to come out again. But how do you all cope with the disappointment of eggs not hatching, I know they were fertile, one did crack but was well after 21 days, think she threw it out and other hens stepped on it but was a dead but formed chick. no idea why they did not hatch. If she continues to sit in nest could I put more eggs under her or would she get up and leave them halfway through, she is very healthy, I had kept food and water by her whole time and she did go out to toilet but then back to eggs. Not sure I can cope again being so excited and then so sad!
