    Tomorrow is Day 21 of sitting on fertilized eggs for my hen. She started sitting on them in the afternoon of October 6. Should I expect them to hatch tomorrow afternoon, or would they most likely hatch earlier in the day? Thanks for your help.

    Correction-- I meant to say my hen started sitting on fertilized eggs on the afternoon of September 6, not October 6.

    Do you think I might hear the shells cracking if I sat out with my hen in the coop tonight? Tomorrow is Day 21.

    ooooh - how exciting. if you want to sit in the coop, sit in the coop. unless you think it may upset mom.

    have fun and enjoy the chicks!
