    Had a broody sitting on 8 wha well she is dry and full of egg yolk, so she broke one, but why did I find 2 more sitting across from the coop 10 feetvfrom were she is I know there hers cause they were cold so I cracked them open and saw baby chicks almost formed, now she has only 3, but there is dried yolk on them is that fine its to cakes on to scrub off but will that affect the babies?
