    I just got home from work, today was hatch day for the eggs under my 2 broody hens, and low and behold the eggs that went cold after the hen was locked out of her nest for 4 hours have started to hatch first! No delay at all, I have seen a little black chick and a little yellow one so far. There were 11 under her but I'm 99% sure that 2 were duds and had canded them at day 14 so fingers crossed the other 7 hatch!!!!
    I will post some photo's when the little ones show their faces, they are a bit shy!
    The eggs under my other broody are very quiet, cant even hear any noises, I'm sure they are on their way though [​IMG]
