Disgusting but true. Chick had just hatched, and I think the hen thought it was an intruder. Has anyone else had this problem? Didn't find similar posts in a quick scan. She's still sitting on the remaining 4 eggs. Probably they're not fertile. But.... what should I do? I have four other broodies (of 12 hens - way too many!) so I could try substituting one of them to sit on the eggs in the hopes that they wouldn't prove to be homicidal moms. Or should I just stick with this hen?
