Death and devestation! I had taken 2 eggs from the nests they smelled terrible and I didn't see anything when I candle them I checked with Momma today been working double shift the last 4 days so hadn't had time. I just went out and smelled something again found a dead chick under her with MAGGOTS!!! a terrible gooey substance was all over all the eggs!! I felt like I had no choice I did a water test, 9 eggs sank like rocks 4 floated at the top and one wiggled Momma had maggots on her chest, I cleaned her and the eggs as best as I could and put her in a new nest. she seemed very happy to have the new clean nest and settled right down on her eggs I can only hope that the chicks left will live and Momma will be ok I can't believe they died because of my neglect I don't think I'll hatch again for a while.
