Hello, So our chickens suffered trauma from neighbor dog breaking into their coop one night. The chickens that we still have after that event stopped laying eggs. So we stopped checking for them after a couple months of no eggs. Well at some point they started laying again and we didn’t check(they don’t lay in the coop). Well my son was out playing and heard a cheeping noise and went to investigate and low and behold one of the hens was sitting on a bunch of eggs and 2 had hatched. We took the two babies as it is still pretty cold here and put them in the brooder with heat. My question is how long should we allow her to sit on the remaining eggs? I did candle them when she left the nest to eat and they are all pretty full with chicks so I know they are all fertile, just not sure how to know if they have already passed their breaking out time or not. The first two hatched we are guessing Thursday morning and it is now Saturday morning. Do I let her sit another week? Does she stop siting when she knows they won’t hatch? This is a first for us so any advice is greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance.
