    Even though some chicks have already hatched she will stay on the rest of the eggs?? She hatched some Saturday and one was hatched this morning. I've candled the other eggs Saturday and they looked healthy. How much longer will she stay and why didn't the chicks all hatch together?

    She might not stay until all the eggs hatch. My last one left the nest with the chicks, i put the rest of the unhatched eggs in the incubator and 4 more hatched.
