She was sitting on 9 eggs but I did not know how long she has been sitting on them, so I left her alone I have been checking in her everyday making sure she had food and water. Then yesterday I went to check on her and there were babies everywhere all but three eggs hatched when I went out there one died before it finished hatching, one piped and the other did not move. So I waited to se if the piped one would hatch but it didn’t do anything,so I helped him out slowly but he survived. As soon as I got him out I put him under his mama to warm up. After that I got all the babies and there mama and put them in a brooder pen. So now I have 7new sebright serama crosses. I also put a 5 day old serama sebright cross that hatched out of an incubator she excepted the chick
