I never had that much table scraps to give to my chickens to have such a problem but I bet they sure do adore you for the table scraps ..
I did find that a roo or hen under a year tend not to produce very good chicks even if you do get the eggs to hatch, better luck on your next attempt at hatching eggs .
I was bringing home a 5 gallon bucket full every day, then over the winter months I stopped because it was too dark by the time I got home. The chickens had already gone to roost.. Now that the days are longer I started bring food scraps home again, only this time I switched to a smaller laundry pail. It is still 3 or 4 gallons ( I haven't really looked to see how much it holds).
They are so trained to come running when I call them (especially if I have a bucket with me), that I use that technique on the rare occasion that I need to lock them up early or get them to come out of the woods before they want to. It is a rare treat for them to get to go into the woods. They use to be able to go in the woods all the time, but then a pack of 3 dogs started coming over for free chicken dinners! So I had to curtail the woodland wanderings. I just recently started letting them out into the woods again.
I'm okay with not having any of my eggs hatch, but I sure hope most of the eggs I set for my friend hatch! I'm a bit concerned because the temps in the incubator have been all over the place! One evening it said 104! I took the top off the incubator right away, but I don't know how long it had been that high ( or if that was even accurate). I am using a mercury thermometer inside the incubator, & the thermometer that was built on the incubator (no, I did not build it, it is store bought) and I am using the Brinsea Spot check. I wasn't having any luck with the Brinsea, it wouldn't read the temps, just kept flashing the L for low ( on all 3 hatches since I got it). I finally decided maybe the battery wasn't strong enough & replaced the battery & that seems to have done the trick. I still don't know how it could have gotten up to 104, I hadn't been messing with the dial or anything. Other times it has read low of around 87.5 degrees. And still other times it is spot on.
So who knows what will happen. I guess I'll know in about 6 or 7 days! Praying for some chicks for my friend. I know she bought some of the eggs and some of them are eggs from her own chickens.
