    It takes around 21 days or so for eggs to hatch. However, if the hen isn't sitting on the nest much because she's out wandering around, they might not hatch. Have you candled the eggs?

    If you haven't already, check out the Learning Center. There are some good articles there on all sorts of topics, including hatching eggs and raising baby chicks:

    Good luck to you!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Sending good hatching vibes your way. If they are/were feral chickens, I'm sure they know how to take care of themselves.

    It takes 21 days to hatch once she starts sitting, she will leave to eat, drink & poop. Leave her and she'll hatch them & raise them. Nothing wrong with guava & worms :) Corn is a treat and not the nutrition/food she/chicks need. If you're buying feed, multi purpose should be good since it looks like they free range and will pick up what ever they find. They're good bug control :)
