    do not throw away un-hatched eggs when the broody deserts the nest after hatching her babies---We saved three cold eggs and placed them into the incubator, within a few minutes the half hatched chicked began to breath, the other two hatched out after approx 1 hour, all the babies are well ( NATURE IS FANTASTIC)[​IMG][​IMG]
