Hi
Probably another week if the broody continues to sit that long.
Did you candle them at any time? If you carefully lift them while the broody is off the eggs to toilet etc, listen to them to see if the are chipping, good luck and keep us posted.  :)

Leave her alone now - she will be able to feel any movement in the eggs and will if they are not viable get off and abandon them. As she is sat tight then something is moving  :D
Staffies are softer than you think.

Hi
Any signs yet??
Hopefully you will go out and find a little chick peeking out from under Mum, which is what happened to me 51/2 weeks ago.
