    momma's new babies, but its been 2 days and one egg hasn't hatched. getting her some foster babies today, but do you think the eggs can still hatch if she stays on it?

    If she has been setting that egg for 23 days, I seriously doubt that it is viable. If it was added to the clutch after initial broodiness, it may still hatch.
