Hi everyone, Sorry for not introducing myself. I am not new. Its just been so long since I was on the site that I forgot my username and password. Anyway I have an emergency and with my limited knowledge I thought I'd ask you guys and gals! *blush* My RIR eggs started hatching on thursday night and their are about 10 or 11 chicks. Yesterday I put epol chick food in with the mom and babies as well as a very shallow dish of water. She seems to be wanting to leave her nest and has abandoned the other 5 eggs. I know 1 is empty as I candled it around day 12. But I stupidly put it back in the nest So I dont know which one it is and its hard to candle during the day. There are 2 eggs that I can hear chirping from. The other 2 nothing so far. What do I do if she abandons them completely? There are no chips or holes in the eggs yet. PLEASE help!
