I have a hen (my first!) hatching two eggs (the first started to pip today!!) Problem is, the eggs were laid 5 days apart and incubation started with the first egg. ( I intended to let her hatch just 1 egg, but the laying hen snuck into the box where broody was sitting and laid another egg, then i couldn't tell them apart! lol) SOOOO, the second egg isn't due to hatch for five more days. I don't have an incubator, so i was thinking of letting chick 1 stay with mom for a day or so, then snatch it at night so hen will keep incubating egg 2, then return chick 1 to mom after chick 2 hatches. What do you think of this plan?
