We are about 24 days into letting her sit with no baby chicks hatching. We have lost 3 eggs in the last few days. Today I accidentally dropped one, but there wasn't anything but runny yolk inside (and it smelled bad!) She pecked one open the other day and there was mushy yellow in it and a developing chick inside (not sure how long in the process it was) and yesterday when I checked the eggs there was a cracked open egg and it was empty. (I'm guessing she ate whatever was inside) Is this normal? Is it bad for her since the eggs I'm sure are pretty rotten (since they smell bad when opened) Is it her way of knowing that they aren't living or going to hatch?? Thanks for any info you can pass along!
