    Ok I have a broody on some eggs and I gave her 7 leghorn/buff Cochin eggs and 2 of hers white cochin/buff Cochin. But i don’t know if the roo gets on her. So she ate one of the brown ones and she ate a leghorn one. So maybe they were bad. But i cant see inside the brown egg that is left. But a week ago I candelled it and i could see the air cell. But yesterday I candelled and i could not see the air cell!! And the egg was not moving and it was not making any noises! So what’s going on!? And yesterday was day 18 i think. So to day would be day 19.

    At this late in the game, I'd say leave it and hope for the best. Fingers crossed for a baby chick. [​IMG]

    Well if she is eating the eggs you should probably transfer them to an incubator.

    GOOD LUCK![​IMG]
