    She set her eggs a 2 days after I set. I talked with her and I told her i thought my hatch rate would be better than hers. She proved me wrong. She hatched two and left the nest to take them outside. I found one on the coop floor. I put him in with my other chicks and hes doing fine. Her other two eggs she left had sounds coming from them so I put them in the hatcher. One hatched tonight the other is on his way.

    Probably a first time broody or her breed isn't the best for broody, good luck [​IMG]
