    i have a hen that is sitting on eggs, they should be ready to hatch. when i was feeding today she got off nest and one egg was smashed with a dead chick in it and there was chirping coming from another egg thats shell was mostly missing but membrane was intact around chick. im not sure if they hatched that way or had another hen got at them when mom was off nest. what do i do would love some helpful comments on this.
