    We had a broody and she abandoned her eggs today or yesterday. One pipped but died because ants got in it and there is 2 more pipping and hatching one is cracked and hatching and
    pipping right now and the other one is trying to hatch but is pipping. We put it in the incubator but my mom thinks they are going to contaminate the other eggs if they hatch and step all
    over them! Can that happen?? They eggs aren't in the turner they are beside them. They aren't touching any eggs at all! Do I need to get them out and stick them under a broody?Or
    just leave them in there until they hatch?
