I let my broody hen out of her dog-kennel-nesting-box daily to dust bathe and eat. My two year old went in today and took all of the eggs out and put them in the regular laying boxes. I wasn't there to see how rough he may have been, but none of them were cracked at all. I put them back in their nest, and mamma is back on them now. They are on day 17 -- so, due to hatch next Tuesday. How much hope should I hold out that they will still hatch?
