    Non hatched :(. So all dozen of my eggs didn't hatch :(. I'm so sad. I only have the one broody hen. We live in Ontario Canada so it going to start getting cold. My broody hen has been sitting for 22 days. Can she go for another 21 days incubating eggs. Is it ok for her or should I wait until spring.

    Sorry that your hatch has not been successful.
    Another 21 days will be too much for your broody, health wise, so I would advise not to give more eggs.

    Agreed, you should wait until spring...both your hen and the chicks would be better for it.

    I'm sorry for your loss. You're not alone, I set 41 eggs and right now it looks like none will hatch.
