My friend had a hen go broody, so I gave her some eggs to put under her to hatch. They were set on Sunday evening, Feb 23, so they're due tomorrow night. Yesterday, we were getting a second, small coop set up for the broody so that when her babies hatch, they'll be safe from the other hens. As it is, four of the eggs were ruined by the other hens. While we were doing that, one of the hens somehow got into the broody's nest and laid a monster egg (probably a triple yolker, the thing was HUGE). Unfortunately it dropped right on one of the eggs, and it shattered pretty horribly. When I picked it up, I saw a drop of blood oozing from the membrane on the opposite side. I told my friend it was probably a goner. She was really upset. We took it inside so that we could autopsy it. When we got inside, we could see it was still moving! Obviously it was way too fragile to be under the broody, so I ran home and got my incubator, and put it in there. Cranked the humidity way, way up. It's been 24 hours now, and it's still wiggling around like crazy. I have only seen that one drop of blood, and it doesn't seem to be shrink wrapping. So, this baby *may* just make it. Honestly, looking at this picture, would you expect a chick to survive 24 hours with this shell? That's a picture from yesterday. I facetimed with her this morning to watch it wiggling around. I asked her to send me a new picture. I'll post it in a sec.
