    We finally got our first egg two days ago our second one today and our third on today also. me and one other person where lucky enough to watch the "birth" of the egg and it was really awesome. when we picked the egg it still had the umbilical cord attached ( i think we picked it to early) but it was pretty exiting!!! We think our chicken "meika" pronounced meeka had a difficult birth it took about two hours but it finally popped out! if you know anything about difficult birth please help!!!

    I'm not quit sure what you are saying, you watched your chicken lay an egg, or an egg hatch? If its hatchlings, I say leave them alone and let nature take its course. Mama knows what to do . The umbilical cord will dry up. But again im not sure what you are saying lol birth or eggs laid?
