9 eggs. 4 hatched yesterday. One today. The one from today had 2 red ants biting its eye when I found it (very very soon after it hatched. This was hours ago and still its eye is shut) I hustled to the store and got ant bait traps for outside the coop perimeter and pray that will get them. I moved mama, babies and remaining eggs to a nest I made on the coop floor with new bedding. It appears the ants were on egg remnants. I feel so bad for the little creature. What a painful entrance. I wonder if the others will hatch? They were all laid on the same day. Maybe not fertilized. Will mama figure this out and get off them?
