My broody Australorp is sitting on 4 eggs and the first one has pipped and I'm so excited!!! Now here's the issue... Day 1: I put 12 eggs under her and we left for a 3 day weekend. Well, she got nest confused and I came home to cold eggs. HUbby said just leave them and see what happens. That same day my favorite EE hen was in her nest box and so I reached under her... No egg... as I was pulling my hand out she laid her egg right in my palm! It was the weirdest thing. So I put it under my broody. I don't have an incubator. We waited a week and candled and 4 had definate signs of life Including the one that's three days behind, and after further research I see she'll probably abandon any eggs that don't hatch in the next day or 2? What can I do if that happens? ETA: This is my second hatch so I'm still pretty new to hatching babies. Have mercy on me.
