happy to announce the hatching of two baby chickens - one Friday and one last night ( Sunday/ Monday ) - they were fertile eggs collected from the neighbours on the same day - questions - she is still sitting on a couple of fertile eggs and a few of her own unfertile eggs - how long would you leave her before you remove the rotten eggs ?

It takes 21 days on average for an egg to hatch once incubation begins. As soon as we want our broody hens to get out of broodiness, I restrict access to the nest during the day. That usually does the trick.
