    I have 2 pair of bantams that decided to make a nest in one of the barns. After stalking them for about 5 days I came across a nest that had 10 eggs in it. So it was there for at least 6 days if not a few more because I normally get 8 eggs a week from them. So I put them in the bator and now all 10 have growth.
    What are the odd they will make it thru the hatch?
    Will a hen still turn the eggs even if she's not setting?
    Thanks for any knowledge [​IMG] Krista

    I think the odds are good they will make it. Good Luck
