I'm not telling you what i think you should do. That being said. ..i didn't look and 3 of my 8 died partway out of the shell. I'm very grateful for the 5 i have, but totally wish i had looked, just to see. I love my chicks like my kids. Though i don't eat the kids, lol. I feel like its my fault .
I opened up the door to the crate she is in to see if she wanted out,, she came a few minutes later and I actually ran outside to her pen inside the coop to take a look, another hen was just fixing to sit on the showgirls eggs, anyhow, I looked, none have hatched, I put each up to my ear, heard nothing, came back inside and took out 3 eggs from my incubator that were chirping, not hatched yet, put them in the nest box with the showgirls eggs, then went and got the showgirl, put her near her cage, she heard the chirping and immediately rant to sit on the eggs with such excitement, it was wild.
I had not candled any of the eggs the showgirl has been sitting on, I didn't even think about it at all. Maybe I should? If for reason she gets off and tends to the 3 babies I just gave her, I can always put her 7 eggs in my incubator to finish up?
