So I had a hen go broody and she got 7 eggs together before she sat. The first chick hatched yesterday morning in a real narrow space up high in the barn. I'm guessing the baby chick fell out to the floor because in the afternoon/early evening the baby and the mama chicken were out walking around. We moved them into a chicken coop all alone to protect her from our other 30 hens and moved the rest of her eggs (6) with her but I'm not sure how long exactly she was off of her eggs. I'm worried she was off her eggs to long and now the others won't hatch because still no more babies have hatched today. How long can the mama chicken be off of her eggs before she goes back to them and they will still hatch? We have had chickens for about 4 years but this is the first time we have had a chicken go broody and hatched our own eggs!! Please help!!
