    My 2 broody serama hens have been sitting 6 eggs. I had 1 egg hatch yesterday and heard chirping under mum until late last night, but having heard nothing since I lifTed the hens to fond the chick dead.

    This is my first time hatching eggs and gutted don't come close. What would you think I do with the remaing 5 eggs? they should hatch any day now.
