    Laverne sat on 3 eggs. She kicked one egg out of her "nest" last week. One wasn't fertilized. One hatched between last night and today. She wants nothing to do with it. I don't have a brooder. All our previous hatches were taken care of by their mommas. Any suggestions on keeping this little one alive?

    Set up a brooder or find it a home that has one.
