Hi Everyone,

I may have a chick emergency on my hands. My broody hen Goldie has been sitting on fertile eggs for 18 days and one is already pipping, not suppose to be until Saturday (20 days) or Sunday (21 days). I'm worried about the other eggs not hatching or Goldie staying with the eggs and not caring for the chick. What do you think I should do if no more hatch by tomorrow morning?

Thanks, Woody
