My chook is an excellent mother and this isn't her first time sitting but it's her biggest brood by far. She has hatched 6 beautiful fluffy babies but has left 3 viable eggs in the nest. One has pipped and the other two are chirping. I have moved them onto some sawdust under a heat lamp and 5 hours later still chirping but nothing more. I put some moist paper towel into the box with them but I'm not sure it's doing anything.
Please help. I don't want to just be prolonging their death if it's inevitable.
