My mille fleur hen went broody so I let her keep her eggs and hatch them out herself. She had a clutch of about six eggs. The first one hatched on the 5th, and as soon as it did, she became super mom. Keeping the baby warm, bringing it to food/water and keeping the chick out of trouble. I initially thought that the other eggs were duds. However, I looked into the floor of the coop last night and one of the other eggs had gotten broken (either by the hen or roo) and there was a fully formed baby chick, complete with fuzz. I have a feeling that the others were probably viable, although a couple days behind the one she hatched. It seems that as soon as the first hatched, she figured her job was done and left the eggs to die. Is this normal for a first timer? She is about 14-15 months old and it was her first clutch to brood out. I feel horrible that I didn't pull the eggs when she got off them and stick them in an incubator. I have a feeling at least two or possible more would have hatched out.
