Hey! It depends on when she started incubating them- sometimes a hen will wait until a few days after the first egg is laid to incubate. Most of my eggs hatched 22 days after being laid. Have you candled them to see if they're fertile? Keep an eye out for DIS (dead in shell) which you should remove if no chicks hatch in the next few days. DIS eggs are identifiable because they turn grey and a blood ring can sometimes be seen when candled. Good luck!

The best idea in future clutches is to candle them after five days of incubation.
It would also be best to mark the eggs so that you can know the order they were laid. It's possible some may not be fertile and you would still be able to tell this late as they would look like a normal egg (yolk visible).

With just days until they start to hatch the only thing you can do is to candle to check or give them a few more days. You will now need to make sure that you allow enough days for the last possible egg laid to hatch before disposing any unless you know for certain it's not viable.
Also temperature can affect how the eggs hatch. Warmer weather can make the incubation period shorter so if it's cool where you are that might slow things up.

Yes it has only just come into Spring here in NZ so I will give it a few more days, mind you the birds are inside and it is warm. No grey eggs in the box, so that's a good sign. I will keep you updated. Thanks.
