I had an Austrolorp go broody on the 1st of this month. She was sitting on 5 eggs, and I gave her 2 more the next day. On Tuesday the 22nd - exactly 21 days later - 1 egg hatched and I have 1 little yellow chick. Today is the 26th and no more have hatched. Actually, I picked the hen up today to see the status of the eggs, to see if any had pipped and 1 looked like it had been smashed. the shell was all broken and I peeled back a little of the shell and found a partially formed chick inside and it smelled awful! So I don't know what to do. Mama and baby are in a box on the floor with a chick feeder and fountain, and the baby chick comes out and pecks around and eats from the feeder. I dipped her beak in the water. But mama doesn't seem inclined to move from the nest yet. It's her first batch of eggs. How long before I simply take the eggs from her and get rid of them? I know hens are supposed to know when they are not going to hatch, so I want to just trust her, but I want her to tend to the one baby she does have. Any suggestions!
