Broody orpington hatch her first egg two days ago. Can you tell by color if it's male or female?
Sorry but still way to early to say.
Ok thanks...thought maybe since it was a cross breed you could tell by color. Also I have two other eggs under hen that were put under her a week after the first egg that hatched the hen is still sitting on them and candleing them they look like they are developing. Is that going to be a problem?
Nope, it's fine. She'll finish incubating and then raise all the chicks together.
Thanks for your help
Should I remove eggs that I can candle and show no development
If there is nothing developing then yes, pitch them.
Ok again thanks
One of the other eggs has started to hatch. The mama hen has left it and is with the one that has hatched a week earlier. Do you hust leave the chick trying to hatch alone
Any suggestions on this
