    My hen layed 7 eggs, she kicked 2 out and 3 hatched. She's been sitting on the last 2 for a week extra now. The others are a week old. Should i take her off the eggs or should i wait a bit longer.?

    After an extra week, I'd say its time. I would, though, candle them first just to be sure -- hate to throw them out only to find that they were still viable and developing.
