She is a cochin bantam and this is her first time hatching. She had 2 eggs around the same development but kept adding more I think of other hens eggs until the end. I just took them all out except the two. They hatched the same day. But one was right before sunset. Everything was fine and then in the morning the chick was dead about 6 inches from her.Not stiff yet. No marks or anything. The other had hatched under her over night. Later that day the other chick was chirping a lot and went and checked and the hen was sitting on 2 eggs that I don't think we're hers and not caring about the chick. My last Hen was a prefect mom so I don't know what to do here. Why is she still collecting eggs after hatching?
