The last time I gave my hen some eggs to hatch, i put her in an area next to all girls by by herself. Worked out great! This time around a friend told me all her hens hatch them in the group (same area), so 18 days ago I watched her come and go to her nest. Sometimes she would leave for a bit and other times she would get kicked off the nest. She would sometimes find her way back or one of us would put the eggs where she was at.. Well about a week and a half ago, I was checking on them (eggs) and 1 was broken. chick of course was dead. This morning I found an egg out of the nest, slightly (surface) crack . Put it back in with Momma and now it's gone! NO shell! NO Chick! No nothing! Now I'm wondering as the chicks hatch this weekend with the adult hens around will they try to hurt them or kill them before they get out? I'm worried about the 2 eggs left!!! I do have a nursery attached to the coop with 6 - 10 week olds and 6 - 6 week olds. I was thinking of moving her in there with a nesting box and hope I'm giving the 2 eggs a chance to live.. ANY IDEAS??????
