I knew that after a week of one chick hatching, the remaining eggs must be bad. Also the broody hen was no longer consistently sitting on the remaining eggs, resulting in them getting cold. So I finally decided to give up on the remaining eggs and crack them into my compost pile. Two of the eggs had a blood vessel in the yolk and nothing more. One of the eggs was a mature looking chick :-( Well the hens came over, excitedly, to the compost pile and ate up the rotten eggs, INCLUDING the baby chick. It was so disgusting. I didn't think that chickens would be cannibals. It was quite disturbing seeing a hen eat a baby!
