    my momma hen sat on 7 eggs, 3 have hatched and 3 eggs were no good, I removed the bad eggs, since she still has one good egg under her can I give her 3 new babies to replace the bad eggs. was going to do this at night while she's asleep.

    You can probably give her as many chicks as she can cover - they can't count.
