This is our first time hatching babies! Our hen had 8 eggs under her, two have hatched about 3 days ago. Yesterday she left the nest for quite awhile with the chicks so we took the remaining eggs (they felt quite cool) and put them in an incubator. We could see them moving around in the incubator so put them back under her at night. One hatched this morning but a hour or so later when I checked the baby had died. I have taken the rest of the eggs out again as she has left the nest again. I guess my question is- is this the right thing to do? Hatch them in the incubator?

Well there is nothing wrong with doing so, I think the one that hatched probably didn't die because it was in the incubator, chicks die all the time for no reason

The eggs in the incubator have stopped moving, does this mean the babies have died?
