    If her other eggs are due to hatch NOW leave it with its mother. If you got eggs under her that you have no idea when they were put there or when they might hatch-----watch out for the chick. All of mine stay with their mother but I know ALL of my eggs will be hatched usually with-in 24hours from the first hatch. So they all come off the next with their mother at one time.
