    My broody kicked 2 eggs out of the nest today. The kids couldn't explain to me over the phone what had happened, so I told them to stick the eggs back under the chicken.

    When I got home I checked the eggs and they stink and have sticky gunk on them. I candled all of the eggs and about 3 of them are sloshy liquid. I am assuming this is bad. Should I leave them as to not bother my broody and the other eggs again or get rid of them asap?

    Thanks a bunch in advance from a first timer!
