2 of my silkies were sitting on a clutch of eggs together. There were 3 eggs that did not hatch and it had been 5 days since the last chick hatched. I took the 3 eggs out the day before yesterday and set them on the counter. Now I hear peeping from one of them and it is loud. I feel Horrible!!! What should I do? Do I crack it open to get it out? and if so how do I do that? I am worried I changed the egg environment and it wont be able to break through. The egg has not pipped. Do I just put it back under another hen? I have another silkie that is broody.
