    I've had some hatches, both under a broody and in an incubator, that were over within 24 hours of the first one hatching. I've had some with both take over three days. That's with all the eggs starting at the same time. I never know how long one will take.

    good luck!

    i have 2 broody hens at the moment trying to hoard eggs. 1 hen i gave a small batch & put her in a pen with my old roo Sunny (bantam Cochin). he's such a good dad & gentle with all the girls that i don't fear he will do any harm to her or the chicks when/if they hatch. i may take the other girl & candle the eggs to see which are forming & move her with a box into the same pen with Sunny.i shouldn't be trying to hatch this time of year & i really don't need more chickens. i just know i loose a couple over the winter & i have wanted to see what could hatch from the crossing of CC (Faverolles roo) with my Barred Rocks, Australorp girls & my older Faverolles which are limited.

    Once my old pair of partridge bantams dies, I'm out of the chicken business. I do miss black bantam Cochins as roosters do an excellent job with chicks.
