In the Brooder
- Apr 29, 2013
I had a hen that was sitting on 21 eggs. Approx 1 1/2-2 wks ago when feeding I found her dead in the nest. You could tell by eyes and comb she starved/dehydrated herself. My emergency is I took the eggs in and put them in the incubator, I candled the eggs and all but 3 are living, but i don't know how long she sat on them and when they need to come off the turner??????? Is there any way to tell when day 18 is or am I chancing this the whole way????? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
