This is my first time dealing with a broody hatching chicks. I made an error and allowed her to sit on eggs laid on different days so they will not all hatch at the same time, with the exception of maybe two eggs. Five were still growing when I candled them on the due date for the first egg, having to remove 2. One chick hatched early yesterday morning and one had pipped yesterday but after over 24 hours nothing happened, I read that this is a good time to see what's goin, and the chick had died inside the shell. There are 3 eggs left and none have pipped yet, but its day 26 and the hen is still on the eggs. The one chick that's alive is healthy, but if my hen ends up sitting on those other eggs till they hatch (another should start today) should I take the chick to show it how to eat and drink by tonight or tomorrow morning? And is there any way I can check the eggs to see if there's any alive at this point? Perhaps candling them? Here's a photo of the one happy healthy little guy/girl! If no others hatch, could I buy a few day old or so chicks and stick them in with her?
