I have this great little bantam cochin silkie crosses that are wonderful incubators. I had one sitting on eggs, and the day before they should have hatched, I went down to the coop to feed/water and I found the eggs all over the place, scattered, and her not on them... none broken, and it was so close to when they should be hatching. I put them under another broody, but they were cold. The other broody took them, and the next day 2 hatched, 1 died, it was born with a bloody sac on its belly. I left the rest of the eggs just in case for a few days, but it became clear they werent going to hatch, or I think anyway. So I took them, and the momma hen threw a fit, got up and went to another nest box, shes not talking to her 1 baby, but lets it sit under her, shes not trying to feed it, or showing it food and water like my other hens have. I dont want to take it, its the only one, it would be alone.
