    The minimum to hatch could be zero. :hmm

    But development of all means your fertility is good. So many things can happen between now and then. Hey, you're off to a great start! :wee

    Well, I bet your hen is content brooding... and will be even happier to have them hatch... Such a precious experience! :pop

    Fluffy chicks are addicting. :oops: :D

    I know it is very difficult to let them be, but, let them be. Your hen knows what to do and if you mess with her too much, she may change her mind about sitting on the eggs. The fact that you have candled and discovered growth in all the eggs is a VERY good sign. Good luck!

    My brood hen that hatched a month ago got 6 chicks from 10 eggs. But I've had a hen that hatched 8 out 0f 11 eggs. I've also had hens that lost them all.. So you just never know. At least with blood veins showing you know that something is happening.
    I know it's hard to leave them alone but now that you know the eggs are good it's best to leave the rest up to the hen.

    Good luck! :jumpy
