So I had 10 eggs that my hen was laying on, all were collected under her within 2 days. I marked them and pulled out all the new eggs the other hens would lay on top of her, I know I should had moved her nest but I honestly wasn't sure how okay with that she would be. She had been an off again on again broody hen. So I didn't move the nest. So she sits on 10 eggs and about half way through the whole deal her sister wants to lay with her. They both are broody and share the nest, so I didn't think it was a big deal. And ultimately it wasn't a big deal. So babies start hatching and I finally feel confident enough to move the nest. ANYWAYS long story short both mamas get off the nest when there are 3 eggs left. From the start of the hatch to getting off was almost 3 days so I figured the eggs in there weren't fertile. So I put them in a egg carton and I threw them away in the dumpster outside. Well. Today I get this crazy idea to open up the carton and see if any were hatched. I was horrified to see that was true. Out of the 3 eggs one of them hatched and was laying in the poor carton a bit cold but alive. I'm trying to nurse him back to health now with sugar water and hopefully he'll be able to develop his legs enough to walk. I feel so heartbroken for him, but I also feel awful about the other 2 eggs that must have been ready to hatch too. I pulled the eggs out and they were cold. I don't have an incubator which is why I didn't incubate them. But I remembered I had a very small heating pad, so I got that out, put the eggs on there and put the new baby on there to warm up and move around. What do I do now? Are the babies in the eggs dead now? What about this little guy that made it? I'm just so mad at myself for being so stupid and careless about those babies. Of course they were fertile. I just hope I can fix it now.
