My hen hatched out 5 chicks, 3 doing great, 1 squished, and one does not seem to be doing great. she still has 10 eggs she is sitting on. Should i remove some so any more that hatch won't get squished or just leave them. this is her first batch. I just think she was sitting on too many. I don't know what to do. The newly hatched one is not tweeting or moving but is breathing and does not seem to be drying out. Should i remove the other chickes so she can concentrate on the new one. Some are 3 day's and 2 day's old. What to do?
