    They're really cute! If the others take too long to hatch she'll either leave them or the ones that have hatched won't make it. If they haven't hatched by tomorrow night you should probably either take the eggs away or put the hatched babies in a brooder - you could try to sneak them food and water but mine usually don't make it.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like you're doing it right. Mine don't let me touch the babies either.
