    The title pretty much says it all. We have three cuties, and the youngest is 30 hours old now. They all came on Day 20. Nothing at all on the other 3 eggs in lockdown for another day and a half. How long before you give up and figure it fizzled?

    Seems like the three that hatched were small ones from the same momma. The other three are bigger eggs that came from a different hen.
