    I wouldn't give up on the unhatched eggs just yet. Some chicks hatch slower than others, or it is possible that those eggs are somewhat behind in development (maybe they were in a cooler part of the nest, etc.).

    Good luck!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    BantamLover X2 Give these time to hatch. She will keep setting for a couple of days. It is common for chicks to hatch 24+ hours later than the first.

    Have you candled any of the eggs? You might have an incubator ready or another broody if she gets off too soon and you are sure there are live chicks in the eggs.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Good luck with the hatch, X3, chicks don't hatch all at the same time and the
    broody will usually sit on the eggs for two days or so after the chicks start hatching, so you may have more chicks yet.
