    I am hatching chickens for the first time. I have got 5 eggs sitting under my broody hen. I bought the eggs online. I have candled them and 4 definately have chicks in them. I had one hatch last night on day 23. The others haven't piped yet and I can't hear any cheeping. Do you think they will hatch? How long do I leve them before I take them out?

    if they are under the hen trust her. She'll get up and leave them if they aren't going to hatch.
