    One of our hens is nesting. This is about the fourth day. We candled the eggs and all were very 'porous'. Do they have any chance of hatching??

    no personal experience, just what i have read here... but supposedly they should be ok. they are more likely to lose moisture, so you may have a lower hatch rate, but i think its definitely worth trying! especially under a broody, they seem to do way better than a bator...
