I was out checking on the chickens and thought I would check in on the broodies. I took an egg, candled it, (it is full, so I assume ready to hatch.) When I put it back, one of the broodies moved slightly, I heard a "pop" and when I looked, another of the eggs had cracked. I can see that there is a chick in it, but there is a membrane covering the chick. Is it hatching, or did she break it when she moved? And if she broke it, should I remove it...or let it go and see what happens?
PS...the broodies are in the same next box. They insist on sitting together. I tried moving the one, and she insists on going back to that same nest!
