    Well, I have two eggs under a broody and it is now around Day 25 (at least). Is it time to take the eggs and give up? I candled them and it seems that it has developed, but there was no movement that I could see. My last broody sat on five eggs and five hatched. This time I had 3 broodies who took the eggs from eachother constantly and I'm wondering if that was the problem with them being exposed to cooler temps. What would you do in this situation?
