    I would have to say 21 full days,,they may pip on day 21,,, many times even longer, this last round didn't start until day 23, and I believe heather had a similar experience with her last round. took 3 days to get all out after the first one also. Would think a broody would take longer this time of the year too,,, the colder temps have to affect them too,,,, Just my opionion !

    Higher temps can lead to an early hatch as well,,,, but you shouldn't run into that with a broody,,, not this time of the year at least.

    Only Chad !!! good one ! how many OJ's tonight ????? and, where's mine, I have off tomorrow.

    Without a doubt .....

    23 days!!!! Oh, please, I hope not! Just our luck, our first broody and she picks the winter to do it so we get to worry longer!

    but more seriously... thanks for the info, it shouldn't be this nerve wracking to let them do all the work! I'm sure our next one will be better. [​IMG]

    My wife got some edamame (soy beans) for a diet she is on. Can I feed the shells to my chickens? I know raw soy beans can be posinous to some animals, but these are cooked. Any input?

    No... I'm sure you aren't biased! [​IMG]

    She's doing the work,, let nature take it's course. How long does she have to go ? You probably aren't going to see the chicks often, they will tend to hide under her alot with the colder temps,,,, not sure how you have things set up,,, but you may want to give some thought to their water / drinking situation if they are staying outdoors after hatch,,,, just something to ponder.

    Good luck with them, I love broodies with peeps.
