My broody hen was due to hatch eggs 3- 27-09 She had had her eggs out from under her more then once. I checked the eggs at day 18 and pulled out all the eggs but 5 that still looked to be ok. I had hoped she would get the 5 to hatch. The smell was horrible so I checked her eggs last night day 22 2 eggs was oozing and one was covered with very wet poop no movement in the other 2 I just knew that the eggs were no good. Don't know if I should open them today or not. So I'm going to see if she sets 21 more days she has fresh eggs under her for try #2. She has 8 welsummer eggs if she stays set due to hatch 4-18-09 Posting an up date she has set the 2nd set and is due to hatch 4-18-09 2 more days .
