So I have another broody hen, sitting on 10 eggs. Three have hatched, and when I lifted mama to check for pips one of her eggs exploded. Forget the horrible smell and gunk, I need to know what to do now! Can I safely move mama and chicks to another nest? What do I do with the remaining eggs if they haven't pipped? Can I wipe them off and put them back under her?
