    hi all, and thank you to all who answer our newbie q's & help us calm down!!
    My first broody hen hatched 4 of 5 eggs she so diligently cared for, yesterday!! They are so freaking cute!
    There is the one egg left and it's been 24 hours. Should I leave it a bit longer to see if it's just a slow grower, or take it out? She seems adamant to keep everyone & everything in the nest right now. I'm wondering if that's my cue to leave her and let nature take its course. They are in the outside coop, doing so well:)
