One of my hens somehow got in with my broody hen that has been sitting on 10 eggs for 19 days. It looks like the intruder tried to take the eggs away from broody. I found the results when I went out to feed this evening. My broody hen had 4 warm eggs under her and 6 were moved away from her and partly buried. One had been broken and the well developed chick was dead. 4 were stone cold, one was cool. This could have happened up to 11 hours ago. I didn't check the eggs, just unburied them and put them within reach and broody pulled them under her.
Is there any chance they can survive this ordeal? I guess I'll find out in a couple of days.
