    I have broody hen and she hatched one chick and then stopped sitting the other eggs so they will probably die... So does that chick need other chicks? or will it be ok with just its mother?

    Sometimes the moms know that the remaining eggs won't hatch. She will be fine with the one chick Leave the eggs to see if she will go back to them. Sometimes they are not as far along as the first one to hatch.
