Will they hatch?

  1. My hen is 6 -7 months she has been laying for almost 1 month are her eggs big enough to hatch they are not regular sized eggs yet. She has been sitting on them for a few days. We thought she had gotten killed she came back and we followed her to the nest! I didn't look at the nest but.. Will they hatch?
    Thanks!
     
  2. Take a flashlight, late and night so it's dark, and candle them. Throw out ones that aren't developed, leave the others. It'll also tell you how far along they are.
    They may be runtie chicks, but I'm sure they'll hatch
     
  3. ok thanks so much I don't know If I'll be able to candle them the hen will be upset maybe when she takes her break I'll go in a dark room. I'd love to try and candle them. Thanks so much!
