I have 3 hens fighting over a nest. The one australorp just hatched 10 eggs a month or so ago and left the chicks alone when they were 2 weeks old. Bad mommy. The other 2 are sumatras who have not hatched eggs yet. I didn't want anymore chicks! But I don't have the heart to end it. I marked the 12 eggs and won't leave them any more than that. Anyone in this area want chicks in a few weeks?? or now?? I have a few dozen to spare.
