    My broody girl was due to hatch yesterday...None have zipped. I checked one egg, and heard a chirp. I tried to put back in the same position/place i got it from. But this being my first time I just don't know how long to wait. [​IMG] I'm sitting on pins and needles here. [​IMG]

    Wait until at least day 25, then candle and if there is still movement put them back and keep waiting.

    Thank you for your quick reply. This is my first time with hatching eggs. I was so happy to see one of my girls went broody! [​IMG]
