    I got some eggs from a friend and set them. Upon candling them, two are WAY ahead of the others. I actually think they are more than 3 or 4 days ahead. Said friend mentioned he had a hen trying to go broody well, I think she had been setting a couple of these eggs. So, how am I going to handle these hatching before the others?

    Can your friend take the two more developed eggs back and put them under his broody? If he can - tell him to mark the eggs and be sure to check under his broody twice a day to remove an unmarked eggs from under her.
