    Hello, my Buff Orpington has been sitting on five eggs for 21 days and they haven't pipped at all. I know eggs can take slightly longer to hatch than 21 days but the they don't even have a dent in them. I'm sure I've done everything right but I'm getting the feeling they're not going to hatch!

    Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    That's fine. Give them a few more days. [​IMG]

    Will do :) She doesn't come off the nest herself (I usually just lift her off twice a day) should I lift her off today or just leave her?

    Leave her. She should be in lockdown right now.
