    We took 10 eggs from my uncle's chickens for our chickens to sit on. The chickens started laying on them but we lost 3 after the first week and now we are 1 or 2 days before their hatching date and we lost 1 more. There is no way for any prey to get inside so we are confused on how the latest one disappeared. Do they get rid of undeveloping eggs this late?
