Broody mom's 1st egg hatched 23 hrs ago, the rest didn't, what now ? I read some where that the next hatch can be in 48 hours, is that true ? Mother hen won't get up from her eggs, at ALL ! 10 out of 16 eggs looked black when I flash lighted them. We looked at the eggs yesterday, and they seem to look ok. The mother probably ate the shell because I couldn't see the shell that the 1st baby chic came out of. Should I be least concerned that the mother hen won't let the baby chic under her ? I guess we learn as we go, but I want to know facts before they happen so that I can prevent bad things from happening to say the least.
