    2 more are in egg box, 1 pipped. Should I take them out? She got off the nest to eat just now so I have a chance.

    Update, she as 1 fluffy puff ball moving around her in the nest and one egg under her that I can't tell much about. There were several other eggs that I slipped under her when she went broody but they weren't fertile so I pulled them at 10 days. Today was hatch day, so the last eggs still might make it. She is being more careful now.

    That's good to hear. Fingers crossed for the last egg!
