Egg Update

I finally cracked open the incubator eggs today.  They were four or five days overdue for hatching, so I figured either they weren't developing or they were dead.  I was right on both counts.  Three didn't develop and three were developed chicks, but dead.  I don't know why they didn't hatch.

And things aren't looking good for sitting hen.  I checked her eggs today.  They smell, but I don't know if it's because they had a rotten egg break on them and stink them up a few days ago or if they're rotten themselves.  I guess I'll just have to wait and see what the hen does with them.  She's still diligently sitting, but I feel so sorry for her.  She's spending all this time alone and it looks like she'll have nothing to show for it.

Same thing with the hen. Also, the way the boys treat her..she might be glad for the rest :o)
