    She probably will stick with the rest of the clutch if they hatch close together. But if there's a big gap between their hatching you will want to move the 1st chick to the brooder until she hatches the others or else she may give up on the rest or she may ignore the new baby in favor of the bigger clutch.

    Well looks like we are going have to make a emergency incubator. She don't want nothing to do with the eggs now. The eggs did have chicks in them.
