    Its been about tenhours since our hen has hatched her first egg and nothing has happened with any of the other eggs.How long should I expect to wait until another chick hatches?This is our first experience with this so we need a lot of advice. Thanks!

    I'd give them at least 24hrs the hen normally will stay on the nest a couple days after the first one hatches.. good luck
