Hi Everyone, I am a first time chicken grandmother, and I hope you can help me figure out what is going on with my mama hen. I have a buffy sitting on eggs in the coop. Unfortunately, the eggs are staggered probably over a span of a week, as other hens snuck their eggs into her nest and my dh was not on the same page as the rest of the family. (long story!) One little baby hatched yesterday. I am trying to figure out if the other eggs are viable, how I will know if they are going to hatch and when. I have not candled the eggs, and my understanding is that I wouldn't see anything at this point? Two or three of the eggs have faint hairline cracks in them. All of the eggs smell fine. One egg feels like there is a ball in it, sloshing in water. The other eggs all feel more solid. How do I know what is going on??? Or do I just need to be patient and wait and check frequently for babies? Thank you!
