Howdy yal! I have a broody hen who is recently hatching some silkie eggs. One of the eggs externally pipped Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. The egg is making progress, and I believe it is close to hatching. Also, the chick is responding to touch and whistles, so I guess that it isn’t in distress... Basically, we are wondering when should the “red flag” go up? Should we just let nature happen on its own or help?? One of my family members is REALLY worried! Any advice is welcome!
